    Dear Daddy,

    It was good to see you. Next time we shall put you up in comfort, I hope.

    I have sent you some clippings and included in the attached envelope an Invoice Envelope for the American Crystallographic Association. Would you please put $7.50 in the envelope and send it to them as my dues? Thank you.

    I hope the paper on antiferromagnetism is Ok. The introduction may be a bit longer than suitable to a shorter paper, and the second NaCl structure needs writing and possibly more on the first; MnO is the basic compound. The end needs doing.

    If you have lost the ACA invoice envelope I have another.

    Love From
