Dear Dick,

On this very special occasion when your friends are joining you to celebrate your eightieth birthday, I think of the many happy hours which I spent with you and with Winifred over more than fifty years. I particularly remember the pleasant evenings at your apartment in George(?) Square and later at your home in Edinburgh which I could only reach by climbing numerous steps; and more recently at your charming home in Dunbar which I visited with Marlies some years ago..

I also remember with great pleasure our numerous scientific (and not so scientific) conversations and the hospitality that you and Winifred extended to me over so many years. I am most grateful for it.

Best wishes to you and to Winifred, especially for many more happy years together,

from your old friend and from Marlies,


Emil and Dick, May 1997, by Marlies Wolf
