"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.
