TitleCopy letter from Professor Frederick John Marrian Stratton, Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, England
Date5 September 1945
DescriptionExpresses pleasure at having received a letter from Stratton, as well as Sir Richard Gregory, Chapman, Sir Henry Thomas Tizard and Sir Geoffrey Taylor.

Also reports his diminished chance of visiting England due to the refusal of the English Government to grant visa entry for their planned scientific delegation. Burgers goes on to enquire as to whether the Royal Society or another British Association might issue an invitation for him to visit and discuss social and international relations in science, in the hope that the chances of being granted a visa might be increased if travelling alone. Burgers suggests that using Stratton's role as secretary to the International Council of Scientific Unions, and president of the CSSR [Committee on Science and its Social Relations], he might have an opportunity to assist.
