On 20 March 1956, Kurt Gödel wrote a famous letter to John von Neumann, in which he formulated the P versus NP question. Here is a link to that letter: [pdf of letter]

I cant seem to find John von Neumann's answer to Gödel's letter online.
Was there one ?

    $\begingroup$ Famously, there is no known answer to this letter (von Neumann was, I believe, in poor health at the time), but I'm struggling to come up with a reference at the moment. $\endgroup$ – cody Jul 15 '18 at 16:22

    $\begingroup$ @cody, Gödel's own letter mentions von Neumann's poor health. $\endgroup$ – Little Helper Jul 16 '18 at 13:33
