Transcript :

26 Nov 1948

Dear Sir,
	I have received your letter of the 23rd November in connection with the post advertised in Nature for November 20th (Box 372).
	It so happens that the project is one with which Dr. Wilkes, Director of the University Mathematical Laboratory, is thoroughly familiar and, if you have no objection to this course, I would suggest that to save your coming up to London in the first instance I should ask Dr. Wilkes if he would be willing to see you and discuss the project with you.
	If you agree and will let me know I will write to Dr. Wilkes.
					Yours truly,
						J. LYONS & COMPANY LTD.
							[signed]
						(J.R.M. Simmons)
						Comptroller.
