Draft letter. 

Letter is an invitation to be a member of a committee of about twenty scientists to meet in India in December "... in order to make an appraisal of the dangers which have arisen from the development of weapons of mass destruction. This proposal has arisen from the public statement made in July of last year, of which we were among the signatories, and in which it was suggested that such a conference should be held."
