- Letter from Dr. E. W. Fajans, Pacific Coast Borax Co., to LP RE: The mineral under investigation is Inderite, a magnesium borate; two types of it have been found in the mines. One of the two types is Dehne; the other has apparently not been previously known. As far as they know, Professor Frondel does not plan to carry out the crystal structure determination, but rather to determine only the crystallographic characterization. Will let LP know the scope of the planned studies when they find out. If Professor Frondel confirms that he is not proposing to determine the crystal structure, then they will send LP a sample of Inderite in case Caltech would like to study the crystal structure.

- Letter from LP to Alden A. Potter RE: Has tried to understand the ideas that Potter is discussing, but finds that the field is one which LP has not thought enough about to form a sound opinion. Interested to see the nomenclature which Potter uses, involving emphasis on the corners rather than the faces.

- Letter from LP to Dr. Hermann O. L. Fischer, Biochemistry Dept., University of California at Berkeley, RE: Responds to Fischer's letter for Robert B. Corey, who has just left for Europe and Australia. Thanks Fischer for sending the 28 peptides. Will try to retain the materials as completely as possible; will return the remainders and even the mother liquors of recrystallization when investigations are completed. Mentions the work involved in preliminary x-ray surveys of these substances. It will be many months before they can all be investigated, so if Fischer would like any of the samples back at any time, let LP know. In addition, they will be returning each sample after it has been investigated, rather than holding the samples until all 28 have been investigated.

10 June 1955
I enclose a check for $100, which is to be used to get me an anniversary present from Mama. Will you look into the question of getting it, and bringing it home with you, when you come next month?
The present for me is to be a Cambridge Doctor of Science robe, such as I wore when I was given the degree in 1947, and also the tam-o-shanter hat to go with it. You probably remember the kodachrome slides. I think that the robe is crimson, with the silk trimming pink rather than gray, as in the Oxford robe.
I think that it would be better to get an old one, rather than a new one - the colors are probably better in the old one.
You remember that my hat size is 7 1/8.
Will you ask around -you might be able to find someone who has such a robe, and is willing to sell it. If it is an old one, the silk should not be so worn that it will fall apart soon. Also, be sure to get the right size.
Mama and I are looking forward very much to seeing you. It is too bad that you can't get here in time to attend the meeting of the American Crystallographic Association - there will be about 100 crystallographers here, and much discussion of x-ray crystallography. The meeting is from 20 to 25 June. Is there any chance of your coming at this time? I recognize that you could not do so and bring the robe for me, but that could be left until next year.
Mama and I have just got back from the garden party for the graduating students. There were not many of the chemists there. Crellin has cooked dinner for us. He came home a few days ago.
