Thank you very much for your elegantly expressed
letter of congratulation.
When I saw your signature, I had a momentary eery
thought that your father must have seen the slide (attached) which I
showed during my acceptance speech at St Petersburg, speaking of the
Russian scientists whom I had been fortunate enough to know; but then I
Samson Semyonovich had named his son Semyon.
I am glad to know that you, who I am sure must be
he, are maintaining the family tradition in science. Do you perhaps even have a
son called Samson?
