    Dr. Marseille Spetz

    R.F.D. 2, Box 300-B

    Arcata, California

    Dear Dr. Spetz:

    I was pleased to hear from you again.

    As to our work on mental disease, I must say that at the present time we are concentrating on mental deficiency. In particular, we are making a thorough study of patients with phenylketonuria, in the hope of finding out the molecular mechanism of production of the manifestations of the disease. I doubt that we shall do anything about schizophrenia.

    Please send me a copy of your paper when it is published.

    With best regards, I am

    Sincerely yours,

    Linus Pauling:W
