"A NOTE ABOUT HONEST JIM: Today Dr. Leonard Hamilton telephoned me from New York.
He has been asked by Wilkins (with whom he has worked) and Crick to arrange that a
lawyer write a letter to Pusey, President of Harvard, objecting to the publication
by Harvard University Press of the book Honest Jim. He asked if I would be willing
to join in. I said that I would like to know what was said in the letter, abut that
I did authorize that I be referred to in the letter, as well as Wilkins and Crick.
I also said that I would pay part of the legal expense. This does not, however, comit
[sic] me, I said, to any further action, such as a libel suit."
