My dear Cheshire,

Very many thanks for so kindly lending me the Distribution Chart for 617. We have had this copied and I am sending you six copies together with the originals. More copies can be readily sent to you should you want them. We are looking into the revised probability data, and I will examine the graphs which I have already supplies to D. B.Ops. In the light of the new figures and send you a set.

With kindest regards,
Yours sincerely,
B.N. Wallis
