Letter from Linus Pauling to Michael Heidelberger
Description:
In this letter Linus Pauling, the world's preeminent physical chemist at the time, asked Heidelberger to comment on a hypothesis regarding the chemical structure of antibodies and the location of the sites at which they bind to antigens Pauling had developed. Pauling's article was published as "A Theory of the Structure and Process of Formation of Antibodies" in the Journal of the American Chemical Society 62 (1940), pp. 2643-2657.

Dear Dr. Heidelberger:
I am sending enclosed my manuscript on the structure and properties of antibodies. I would be glad to have your opinion of the manuscript, and especially any suggestions about its improvement. The manuscript has been submitted to Lamb for publication in the Journal of the American Chemical Society, with the suggestion that I might want to revise it somewhat before publication.
With best regards, I am
Sincerely yours,
Linus Pauling
P.S. Are my references to your work all right?
