Belfast, North Ireland
I am very pleased to receive your letter of August 26, which has been forwarded to me from Oxford, and accordingly delayed. It came the same day as your second copy. I shall not be in residence at Oxford until about January 1, and I shall then stay there until the end of June.
It will be a pleasure to visit Belfast, and to see you again. I trust that my wife will be able to come along too. We are bringing three of the children to Oxford with us.
Our fourth child, the eldest, whom you remember from Holzhausen, is to be married on Saturday. He will stay in the United States during the coming year.
I am glad to accept your invitation to me to be a member of the Advisory Board of the Acta Crystallographica. Whenever there is a possibility of my giving useful advice, please let me know.
I am not sure that it will be possible for me to send a paper to you for the first issue, that is, a paper of which I am author or co-author. I am very busy, with a number of jobs to get done before leaving for Europe. I believe that I have arranged for two papers from this laboratory to be sent to you, one by Professor Verner Schomaker on the use of punched cards and one by Mr. A. M. Soldate, on the structure of the intermetallic compound FeSi. I have just been talking with Dr. F. J. Ewing about the possibility that he and I could prepare in the near future a brief article on some phase of the structure of metals and intermetallic compounds which would be suitable for the Acta Crystallographica. There is the possibility that we can do this, and if it can be done we shall send you the manuscript as soon as it is ready.
With best regards, I am
