I have your letter of October 5. I shall arrange for one of our residents at the
Hospital to see if it would be possible to employ your suggestions in the use of carbon
monoxide in a group of patients, as well as sodium nitrite, in another, in the management
of some of our sickle cell patients. I have thought about the suggestion which you
made several months ago and really have not had the opportunity of following it through.
We have not been sending any sickle cell blood recently, as we were not certain that
you wished to have the shipments continued. If you do, we shall be very happy to
arrange this as we have in the past.
Vivian and I certainly enjoyed reading about your life and thought it was well done.
