Letter from Michael Heidelberger to Linus Pauling
Description:
Throughout Heidelberger's career, fellow scientists, including the preeminent physical chemist Linus Pauling, turned to him to obtain preparations of polysaccharide antigens, antisera, or purified antibodies for use in their own experiments. Heidelberger accumulated an extensive stock of these substances over the course of six decades of research in immunochemistry.

Dear Linus:
It was good to hear that the studies you and Campbell are making are turning out so favorably and the number of useful antigen is increasing. I only wish I could send you a gram of type One substance but this is impossible. I am, though, sending you under separate cover a few 10th's of a gram of a product prepared by Dr. John W. Palmer of the Biological Division of E. R. Squibb and Sons, which I have every reason to think is as good as can be obtained.
Hoping this will suffice and with all good wishes,
Cordially yours,
Michael Heidelberger
