Dear Dr. DeBakey:
We wired you this morning and assure you we feel very sorry that you sent it.
No doubt, you have in the meantime received our two letters, which explain the reason for the delay.
We have given a great deal of time and thought to your blood transfusion apparatus because you were recommended to us by Dr. Ochsner, and only hope that you will accept our advice and not spend any money in patenting your present type machine.
I have given a great deal of thought blood transfusion work, and have read everything that has been printed on blood transfusion for the past ten years, and I know the different apparatuses which are on the market at the present time.
We expect to send Dr. Ochsner our blood transfusion apparatus within the next two weeks and, no doubt, he will be very happy to show it to you.
We assure you that we are sincere in our endeavor to be of service to the medical profession.
Very truly yours,
Becton, Dickinson and Co.
O. O. R. Schwidetzky,
Manager Research Dept.
