Letter from F. C. Bawden to Rosalind Franklin
Description:
F. C. Bawden (1908-1971) was a pioneering plant pathologist and virologist based at the Rothamsted Experimental Station in England. He and N. W. Pirie were longtime collaborators in plant virology. During 1956-57 Franklin's team studied a number of different virus samples provided by Bawden, and elucidated their structures.

Dear Miss Franklin,
As I have never worked with the Ribgrass strain of tobacco mosaic virus, I am not quite sure what tests I can make to identify your specimen with certainty. However, I will do enough tests at least to show whether or not it could be the type strain.
Did you ever make any measurements on the strain from leguminous plants that I sent you some months ago? We have not yet started any work with potato virus X, but when we do have a purified preparation I will send you some.
Yours sincerely,
F.C. Bawden
