  • Letter from LP to R. H. Bogue telling him that they were glad to invite Prof. J. A. Hedvall and had him present a seminar talk there. [Reply to Bogue August 9, 1949]
  • Letter from Stanley Schaefer, W.H. Freeman and Co., to Beatrice Wulf, RE: Schaefer would like to know if LP would object to letting the printer make a correction to an illustration in "General Chemistry," rather than taking the time to send the original drawing back to Hayward for revision. [Filed under LP Manuscripts of Books, 1950b.1]
  • Letter from W.H. Freeman, W.H. Freeman and Co., to LP . RE: Freeman agrees with LP's reasoning on pushing back the revision of "General Chemistry," but he does not think it wise to postpone it for two years. He suggests that they talk about it later, but for now says to assume that the revision will be published in the spring of 1952. The reprint of the present edition is being rushed through due to low stock, since sales for the fall have already surpassed last year's. [Filed under LP Manuscripts of Books, 1947b4.6.]
  • Letter from W.H. Freeman, W.H. Freeman and Co., to LP . RE: Freeman says he has no problem with the slight changes in the schedule for the delivery of the "College Chemistry" manuscript. He says that he will expect the completed manuscript in late October, and probably publish in March 1950. [Filed under LP Manuscripts of Books, 1950b.1]
  • Telegraph from Beatrice Wulf to W.H. Freeman, W.H. Freeman and Co., RE: Wulf points out one correction in "General Chemistry," and asks local chemists to check and wire a reply. [Filed under LP Manuscripts of Books, 1947b4.6.]
