  • Letter from LP to Dennis Flanagan, Editor, Scientific American, RE: Irritated by a recent article in Scientific American. The article, "Fractures in the Pacific Floor" by Henry W. Menard, was poorly written in LP's opinion. Cites many specific examples. Other articles published in the same issue do not seem to be open to criticism.

  • Letter from LP to Dr. Gary Felsenfeld, Mathematical Institute, Oxford, England, RE: Had not learned that Felsenfeld's National Science Foundation Fellowship had been renewed. Interested in Felsenfeld's study of the chlorocuprate ion structure. Requests the reference to the determination of the complex's structure. [Filed under LP Correspondence: (F: Individual Correspondence. (Feinburg - Feynman)), #119.3]
  • Letter from LP to W.H. Freeman, W.H. Freeman and Company, Publishers, RE: Believes that MacDougall's comments regarding Wall's Thermodynamics were good ones. Suggests that the comments be sent to Wall. Does not have a strong preference between the two titles offered by Wall. Thinks that Principles of Chemical Thermodynamics might be best. [Letter from LP to Freeman June 15, 1955] [Filed under LP Correspondence: (W.H. Freeman and Company, 1941-1959), #439.13]
  • Letter from LP to W.H. Freeman, W.H. Freeman and Company, Publishers, RE: Has read most of Introductory Quantitative Chemistry. Has made notes in many places. Suggests that the first ten pages of the chemical equilibrium chapter be omitted. Suggests that the pages be replaced by a few paragraphs which remind the student about chemical equilibrium. In general, the manuscript looks good. The authors seem to be at their best when they are discussing the quantitative determinations themselves.
