Letter from G.N. Lewis to Linus Pauling. May 29, 1929.
Lewis writes to express his pleasure that Pauling is staying at Caltech and will be able to make regular trips to Berkeley.





May 29, 1929

Professor Linus Pauling,

Gates Chemical Laboratory,

California Institute of Technology,

Pasadena, California.

My dear Pauling:

We were all interested in your decision and all pleased to think that you are not going to be far away. It is a delight too, to know that you can be with us and almost any time that suits you will suit us. April is perfectly satisfactory, except that it would be better to begin the last week in March since our examinations begin about a week before the end of April. You will receive a formal invitation before long.

I hope to be here at the meeting of the Association but I cannot be absolutely sure as yet. If I can be here I shall, and I shall look forward to seeing you.

I am sorry I forgot to return to you the paper by Heisenberg. I am sending it to you now.

With kindest regards to Mrs. Pauling and yourself, I am,

Yours very sincerely,

Gilbert N. Lewis
