27 December 1954
Dear Bea: All is going well. We went to Bethlehem & Old Jerusalem on Christmas Eve, and to the Negev (desert in south of Israel) yesterday, visiting Beersheba & Sodom - on the Dead Sea. Today we visited the Med. School. Would you send the old OPG reprint (anything new, if there is anything too) to Prof. E. Wertheimer, Med. School, Hebrew Univ., Jerusalem?
Also, would you write Bill Freeman & also Reynolds of Cornell U-Press to find out how much money is due me in Japan, & get letters to permit me to draw on it? I forgot to bring last year's.
Has any reply come from Dr. Bongsadadt?
Didn't I write Lucy Pickett accepting the invitation for April 23? If not, please do so for me. Have you been able to move N.Y.U. (Mislow) up from 6 May to 29 April? I have written Dr. Ritchie that I cannot do the four college series (other than 23 April).
We set off now for Haifa by car (we shall see the Duvdevani's on the way) & then, at 5 PM (time changed) for Nicosia, etc.
Best regards to Oliver too.
