12 September 1956
Mr. W. K. Sherwood
Hopkins Marine Station
Pacific Grove, California
Dear Mr. Sherwood:
I am pleased to have your letter of 7 September, with the interesting information about indoles, especially in relation to schizophrenia. I trust that you will continue your work on the substance that you have extracted from patients suffering from schizophrenia, and identify it without question. Probably some work should be done to see what the introduction of the substance into the blood stream does to normal individuals.
If you come to Pasadena, please let me know ahead of time, in order that we may find a suitable time for conversation. Another possibility is that you come to call on me sometime when I am at our ranch, which is 20 miles south of Lucia, on Highway 1.

The Merc has begun to go. It was taken to the dock today and will sail in a week or so, I should suppose. Someone will have to go get it from the docks, or if there is a transport company that will deliver it to Fairpoint Street, then they must be known. I do not really want Daddy to have to handle it, because it is not very straightforward to drive. Perhaps you have some trustworthy friend who lives during the winter in Pasadena that would handle it, or perhaps Rod Smythe. Papa will have to handle the customs, I fear. I shall send instructions on how to make it go. But something must be arranged for getting the thing from the dock to Pasadena, and you, sweet brother, must arrange it. Unless you want to fly down and do it your self. The car must not be allowed to sit around the dock, for it will be bashed up by dockers and crates. The easiest thing would be to get a commercial transport company to get it to Pasadena, but the Company must be found and then informed of its arrival. It should be around within a month or so. Please arrange something so that Papa will have the minimum amount of work and worry. I shall inform you of the Lep company agents in Los Angeles. I shall pay the shipping charges, but someone there must pay the duty, which will be of the order of $120. The handling charges at that end must be paid too. Please arrange.
Gregorio is getting bigger. He seems a sweet child as they go. We are house hunting. I shall send some pictures of him today or so.
I am sending Mamma a subscription form for Road and Track for me. Please suggest to her that it is well worth it.
I am pleased about the ranch, and am applying for the position of resident overseer.
The glass for the quarter window is in the back of the Merc, and I hope it will arrive unbroken. Also the rubber in the side pocket and some chrome polish or wax or something.
