Annotation by Joshua Lederberg:
KW: P-279; Natural selection theories of antibody formation; Haurowitz;
 Ehrlich;




Thank you very much for your kind letter regarding the views I
presented in my note on antibody formation. I now enclose a reprint
of this paper.
Since you mention that you have been told that there is a certain
degree of similarity between Ehrlich's own views and my hypothesis,
I enclose a reply I httve just sent to professor Haurowitz who has
pointed out to me both this similarity and his disbelief in the pre-
formed existence of antibodies against %trange products of the chem- ical laboratory".
I was very happy to have your letter, and as you say "at least one
second for my proposal". No others have come forth since I published
these ideas but I am more content to have you than the whole clan of
immunologists.
