Hutton, 31 May – returns documents relating to IK; knows she is an indefatigable worker and that her study is of great value; sympathises with her request for a calculating machine; they are extremely expensive but at Cambridge they have recently been provided with a new one by the Wellcome Trustees; the earlier model may therefore meet IK’s needs (tp.)
