The London School of Economics and Political Science [centered score] (University of London) Telephone: Holborn 9783-7. Telegrams: Poleconics, Estrand, London [stamped] ]University College London Penrose Papers 139/4[end stamp] Houghton Street, Aldwych, London, w.c.2 October 9th. Dear Lionel, This is the prettiest story in the genetics of mental conditions yet extracted. I wish I had it in time for Nature and Nurture however I did mention the method as a private communication. I am glad you have not provided new evidence for paternal impressions or telegeny. (My typewriter like so many people nowadays will go to extremes). Hope to see you soon. The book looks very nice. All good wishes Lancelot [end]
