Thank you. I do feel that this is a good decision.

I and Hardy suggested earlier that the name TRAIAN POPOVICI should be
engraved in somewhat larger characters. I don't think we ought to insist
absolutely on this, but I do feel that it would make the plaque more
impressive. Maybe you could convey this idea to whoever is going to work
out the detailed arrangement of the lettering on the plaque.

You have taken on a big job organising this plaque. It may seem like a
thankless task, but it is in a noble cause, and I am sure that we are all
grateful to you for taking it on.

Best regards,
