Linus Pauling: G.N. Lewis, the same year, in fact the same issue of the journal, the paper that
just followed the Bray and Branch paper, said that there were three kinds of compounds
or bonds; polar, non-polar, and metallic compounds. He said he didn't think you should
try to introduce the partial, he talked about partial polarity of bonds and suggested
that sometimes there was no need to put in arrows like this, as Bray and Branch were
doing all the time. It was better sometimes just to draw a line. These lines went
back actually to Franklin's time in the 1850s as representing the valence bonds.
