Correspondence

Letter from Henry B. Bull to Linus Pauling. June 28, 1943.
Bull writes to pass along a research report and to wish Pauling luck in his work on artificial antibodies, while at the same time noting that "I am glad it is your and Dan [Campbell]'s baby and not mine. Bull also again inquires into the possibility of Swingle and Wright building an electrophoresis apparatus for use in Bull's laboratory.

Dear Doctor Pauling:

I am enclosing a report on the research on the production of artificial antibodies which I carried out during the spring quarter at Pasadena. Dr. Wright took an active part in these experiments and his suggestions and aid were most helpful.

Well, perhaps you are right about the possibility of production of artificial antibodies; however, I must say that I am glad it is your and Dan's baby and not mine. Best of luck, and if in my wanderings around in the field of proteins, I turn up something which might prove of value to you, I'll send it to you.

I am wondering what your reaction might be to having Swingle and Wright make up an electrophoresis cell for us.

Sincerely yours,

Henry B. Bull
