Letter to the Editor

Gratitude for equipment donated

Dear Bill

As you may know, Argentina is going through very difficult times, and the pursuit of Science in general, and Crystallography in particular, is not an exception to this state of affairs. Fortunately, the international community has a remarkable sense of solidarity, which helps us to go on working. We at the Atomic Energy Commission in Argentina, wish to express our indebtedness to Judith Howard and her research team, from Durham U., UK, for the donation of a four circle diffractometer vital to our scientific survival. We sincerely hope that her generosity, will stimulate similar generous acts to promote science in the lesser developed regions of the world.
