Letter sent from Prof. Polanyi to Martin Martins, March 1940, following the latter's return to England from Palestine. They had returned in 1939 so that their first child could be born in England but were caught in England by the outbreak of war. Polanyi congratulates Martins on the birth of his son (Michael) and wishes him success in the work he has found in Glasgow, which was concerned with producing insulation material from glass fibre. Polanyi's letter indicates clearly his high regard for Martins' work and creativity.
