31 May 1961
I note that you are down on the program on 31 July in Boulder, Colorado. Are you planning to come on and see us?
We could reimburse you for traveling expenses, at least from Boulder to Pasadena and back, if you were to come to help me complete the paper on antiferromagnetism. I haven't done any work on it recently, but hope to get more accomplished soon.
Mama and I decided to give up our July-August European trip, although there is still a possibility that we shall go to Germany for perhaps ten days toward the end of August.
The Oslo meeting went off very well. In a few days I shall send you a copy of the Oslo Statement.
Both Mama and I are having a hard time getting our work done.
Much love from
