It is not necessary for you to decide promptly about our offer of a job to you. However, please let me knew as soon as you do decide.
I thank you for discussing with Don Rosen the opening in our laboratory. He has written to me, and I am answering his letter now.
We have been refused permission a couple of times by the OSRD to present our seminar on the oxygen meter, even though Dr. Beckman was given permission to present on June 11 the same material at an open meeting of the American Chemical Society at Berkeley. I have again written requesting permission for the seminar. Mr. Shoemaker is beginning work on the manuscript, which will be submitted to you later on.
- Letter from LP to Mr. S.D. Beard, American Cyanamid Company, cc: Dr. G.W. Wright. Informs Beard that although the samples he sent them of the rabbit antipneumococcus antibody globulin and the polysaccharides for each specific antibodies have proven satisfactory, the antibody labeled Type 4 does not react with the polysaccharide labeled Type 4. Provides Beard with the notations on these samples and says that if this information will help Beard find the cause of the difficulty, then maybe they could exchange one of the reagents with him.
