"The only reason that I am pleased Ava Helen and you did not come to Cambridge centres
round some objects made out of clams, chopped onions and other ingredients, of which
I remember eating about sixty without stopping in your house. When I thought you were
coming I wondered how I could reciprocate. The only thing I knew was that when we
tried to make the objects at Cambridge the result was an evil-smelling black glue
which had to be relegated to the ash-can."
Victor Rothschild. Victor Rothschild to Linus Pauling. May 13, 1952.
