"I may say that I would not want to condense these papers into a single paper, because
the subjects are different, although, of course, closely related....You can now see

is such that it would be wrong to confuse the reader by lumping everything into a
single paper. We may later - without doubt we shall - write some very detailed accounts
of the whole business. I feel that this is the greatest step that has ever been taken
toward the solution of the general protein problem."
Linus Pauling. Letter from Linus Pauling to E. Bright Wilson. March 7, 1951.
