I should have liked to have come to the States this autumn, but there now seems no likelihood. It is very nice of you to ask me to stay with you if I did come, and nothing would have pleased me better. Some day, however, I hope to see you in your home. With kindest regards to your husband and yourself." Alexander Fleming was awarded the 1945 Nobel Prize in Medicine for his "discovery of penicillin and its curative effect in various infectious diseases." Fine condition.
