- Letter from B.S. Kierstead to LP, RE: Kierstead has decided not to sign LP’s appeal. Kierstead sees how when certain nations possess atomic weapons that world danger increases.

Kierstead does not believe that total disarmament would be an effective policy.

24 February 1961
Mama and I are happy that we shall be seeing you this summer. We are coming to Europe in April, but not to England. However, when we come again in August, to go to Moscow, we probably shall be able to visit you.
We are issuing invitations to a Conference Against the Spread of Nuclear Weapons that we are arranging, to be held in Oslo 2 to 7 May. No organization is involved, except some of the members of the Protest mot Atomvăpen, such as Otto Bastiansen, are helping with the local arrangements. Mama and I plan to fly from New York to Paris on Friday 21 April. We have some sort of an affair to attend in the City Hall in Paris on Saturday 22 April, and on Sunday we shall probably go to Montpellier, where Professor Jean Salvinien has arranged a meeting of a society of physical biochemistry - I shall present a paper on my new theory of general anesthesia. We are going to stay with the Salvinien’s in their house. Also, I shall at that time receive my honorary doctorate from the University of Montpellier. Probably on Saturday 29 April we shall then fly to Oslo, to help in getting ready for the Conference. The Conference is followed by a NATO meeting (to which I have not been invited) 7 to 10 May, and Mama and I probably shall fly to New York on 11 May, take part in a meeting at Carnegie Hall, and then go home that weekend.
The letter on the opposite side is one that we are sending out with copies of the printed petition to people in the United States and Canada. I am sending a different letter to Bertrand Russell and Canon Collins, etc., asking that they reproduce the petition and gather signatures.
I judge that no replies came to you from China.
You will note from the back side of the printed petition that Outer Mongolia...
I hope that you do not mind that we did not put your name down in the printed list. We thought that we shouldn't have too many Pauling's.
I enclose my check for $2,500, with the suggestion that you use it for a down payment in case that some property that appeals to you turns up - it might tide you over until we can answer any cable that you might send.
Mama and I love you very much.
I was pleased to see your interesting article on nickel bis acetyl acetone. When are you going to publish the research in your thesis?
