  • Letter from LP to W.H. Freeman, W.H. Freeman and Co., RE: LP is glad to hear that new plates will be used for the new edition of General Chemistry. He thinks it might be wise to design it so that it looks different from College Chemistry. He asks Freeman for two more copies of General Chemistry so that he might make a new, accurate copy of the manuscript, in case anything should happen to the first copy. He is still considering Hasting's suggestion that the book might be used for advanced inorganic chemistry, and thinks he might put something in the preface about it. [Filed under LP Books, 1953b.1]
