Dear Dr. Crane:
I thank you very much for sending me the copy of your annual report as Editor of Chemical Abstracts, and also for your kind congratulations on my selection as President-Elect of the American Chemical Society.
I have the greatest admiration for the extraordinarily fine work that you have been doing for so many years as Editor of Chemical Abstracts. Like all other chemists, I feel very grateful to you for your unselfish rendering of such a great service.
Now that I have been in England for a month and a half this winter, I have begun again to think about the possibility of closer cooperation among English-speaking chemists. I know that there are many difficulties connected with the idea of having a single joint abstract service for all the English-speaking people, but I feel also that the possible advantages necessitate continued, careful consideration of this proposal. I would be glad to hear from you some time later on, in case that you feel that there is any chance of introducing further cooperation, even on a small scale.
With best regards, I am
