Dr. V. Bush, Director
Office of Scientific Research and Development
1530 P Street NW.
Dear Dr. Bush:
I am very pleased to accept the appointment mentioned in your letter of January 5 as a member of the special committee
which will devote its attention to the question of the future of medical research in this country.
If the committee holds many meetings, it may not be possible for me to attend all of them, because of the distance
from California to Washington. I shall, however, do my best to be helpful to the committee.
Sincerely yours, Linus Pauling
