Dear Dr. Fredriksson,

Myself and Sundaram returned to Calcutta on the 18th evening after a brief stay at New York and London en route.

I am taking the earliest opportunity of conveying my sincere thanks to Mrs. Fredriksson and yourself for the excellent lunch (Part^[[l]]y Indian) and all help and courtesies extended to us. I have already written to Mr. Challinor thanking him for the lunch. I would also like to thank your friend, Mr. Joseph Nelan (Joe) for the ride from airport and for his enjoyable company on the evening of our arrival in Washington.

I have conveyed to Dr. MVN Murthy and A. Dube as to how our paper was received at the session in Montreal and about the future programme of work.

I am glad to inform you that I now have the clearance from all concerned to reproduce the air photo of the Lonar Lake. Copies are being made. I shall mail them very soon. About the colour photo on Lonar some more editing is necessary. On completion I shall write to you so that it can be made into a talkie as well.

With best wishes,

Yours sincerely,


(M.S. Balasundaram)
