    Mrs. Linus Pauling

    3500 Fairpoint Street

    Pasadena 8, California

    Dear Mom:

    Rest assured that you are very welcome to stop off here August 15th on your way through. I see no reason why it should bother Liese at all. We shall be careful to avoid telling anyone about it so that you won't be bothered. We shall inform the Powells that you will be coming and that they are to meet you. Just to make sure, you might send them a wire prior to leaving Japan. Their address is the same as our's 3909 Round Top Drive. His name is Herbert and her's is Mary.

    We are awfully sorry to miss you on your way through here, but are looking forward to seeing you in Pasadena at the end of August or the beginning of September. We shall let you know more exactly when we have our schedule finalized. Best wishes and have a good time on your trip.
