Dr. Robert D. Coghill, Chief
Northern Regional Research Laboratory
Dear Dr. Coghill:
I am sorry that my answer to your letter of November 29, 1940 has been so long delayed. Because of a period of illness, I put a number of letters to one side, and have only now got around to answering them.
The work described in your letter and the accompanying reprint is very interesting. I feel, as do you, that your results are not incompatible with my theory of antibody structure. The variation in amount of destruction of antibody potency for different antisera probably is due, as you suggest, to differences in the stability of the antibody configuration.
You may have noticed the report of the work which Dr. Campbell and I have been doing on the manufacture of antibodies in vitro. Dr. Campbell has now tested a preparation of antiserum against Type I pneumococcus polysaccharide, and has found that it protects mice against Type I pneumonia.
