Thanking Patrick Geddes for letter and review. Comments that 'a synthetic period is now at its start, the return, or reverse of an epoch of analysis lasting since 1700'. Accepts Geddes's proposition that 'the perspective is from the sociological to the physical', leading to the promise of 'a genuine synthesis of physics and biology'.
