7 May 1959
Dr. Linus Pauling Jr.
1531 South Beretania Street
Honolulu 14, Hawaii
I suggest that you tell Gerardo Jovinelli to tell his two Ph.D. friends in Rome to write to Professor Robert F. Bacher, Chairman, Division of Physics, Mathematics, and Astronomy, California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, California, and ask what the possibilities are for getting post-doctoral appointments in physics.
Thanks for the clippings.
Mama and I had a good time when we went east for two weeks. We stopped at Ford Motor Company Research Laboratory, University of Michigan, Michigan State University, Detroit, Penn State University, Philadelphia, and New York, and came home by jet. We enjoyed especially a flight at about 2000 feet from Penn State University (central Pennsylvania) over the Appalachians to Philadelphia in a Cessna.
I am pleased that Liny enjoyed his week with us. Mama and I had a good time with him, too. We are looking forward to having him back again, and to having the other children, too-perhaps one at a time.
I am just finishing the manuscript of the third edition of the Nature of the Chemical Bond, on which I was working in Honolulu. Most of it has been sent to the publishers already.
We are getting ready to go to Europe and probably to Africa, where we shall visit Dr. Schweitzer in Lambarene.
Much love to you and Anita and the children,
