Dear Member,

You should already have received the first issue of the Bulletin. Many members have encouraged me to continue, and that is the reason for my letter for you, after I had talked to G. Prota and 0. Riley.

I would appreciate it very much if you would consider contributing to future issues by sending me a short text of 1 or 2 pages of either commentaries, or critical discussions, or critical reviews, or letters to the editor, on a subject related to your work on pigment cells.

Contributions are badly needed if we are to stimulate our members with new ideas and critical analyses in our Bulletin. This kind of short contribution has no place in a regular scientific journal such as the new "Pigment Cell Research'' edited by Joe Bagnara, and to which, I hope, you will also send manuscripts. Please let me know at your earliest convenience if you are to contribute to the "Pigment Cell Bulletin''. For your convenience, I enclose a form that you are kindly asked to fill in and send back to me.

I look forward to hearing from you. Yours sincerely,

Ferdy J. Lejeune, Editor
