Dear Dr. Pauling:
It is with profound regret that I write to advise you that we will be unable
to fund the megavitamin load research project discussed in previous correspondence.
The private research funds available to us for these studies have been severely
cut back to the point where even other aspects of our services have been threatened.
Until the Congress reaffirms the National Sickle Cell Anemia Control Act now pending
before it, the federal priority reduction in this field will reverberate throughout
We will let you know as soon as a change occurs. In the meantime, however,
we will continue to follow your progress with the megavitamin study and wish you continued
success with your work.
