Letter from Alan Gregg to Walter B. Cannon (March 5, 1936)
March 18, 1936
Dear Doctor Cannon:
Let me at knowledge with thanks your letter regarding correspondence with de Kruif and Draper. It seems very clearly a case
of a field obviously needing exploration and particularly exploration which may prove convincing and thorough. It is not
a subject on which it is easy to come to a decision, and I am consequently more obliged to you for your kindness in furnishing
me with further information and opinion in connection with it.
To answer the last item in your letter I am very sure that if you would like to keep Mr. Rockefeller's letter regarding
the grant made to your investigative work I should be very glad to have you do so.
