Eastman Exchange Professor,
Oxford University, Oxford.
Dr. Pomerat and I have just returned from a couple of days at Oxford. You will doubtless hear that we were there, and I don't want you to think we failed, from carelessness or lack of interest, to look you up.
Actually we deliberately avoided you! I hear on all sides that you are working too hard; we had no specific or pressing business with you; and I refuse to complicate your life further and unnecessarily. So just take this note as proof that you were not forgotten.
Director for the Natural Sciences.
