Dear Michael:
Many thanks for your letter and I, too, enjoyed our
conversation at the Venrock dinner in Pocantico. Your work is
tremendously exciting and I can understand the enthusiasm which
fuels your energy in this work. I enjoyed reading the article
you enclosed and am impressed by the people you have attracted to
your Board of Directors. This says a great deal in itself.

Your invitation to visit is tempting, indeed. I don't get


to San Francisco as often as I'd like, but will keep your
suggestion very much in mind for future trips. Thank you for the
suggestion.

With kind regards,


Sincerely,

David Rockefeller

Dear Michael:

Thank you for your most recent letter and the newly printed
prospectus. You must be very pleased with your initial public
offering, and I hope the response is all that you hope for.
Although I am sure your friends in Venrock have already received
a copy, I am forwarding this one to my colleagues in Rockefeller
& Company. I am sure they will find it of interest.
With best wishes for the New Year,
Sincerely,

David Rockefeller
