Dr. Gobind Behari Lal

Dear Dr. Lal:
This is just a note to tell you that my wife and I have got safely home, after more than three months away. I found your letter of 19 January waiting on my desk.
I want especially to tell you that we were greatly impressed by India - not only by the scientific men, some of whom are really fine, but also by the political leaders.
I trust that you are making satisfactory progress in the plan that you discussed with me in Princeton.
