Dear Doctor Sabin,
Your chart is all right I think, with the exception of the position of the Polysaccharide. Its present position would indicate that it is a cleavage product of the phosphatide--whereas it is an original cell constituent that was present in the alcohol-ether extract.
I think it would be better if you could list it at the bottom of your chart in a separate compartment in the same manner as you have done with the living and dead tubercle bacilli at the beginning of the chart.
Under separate cover I am sending you 250 mg. of the polysaccharide.
As to the newspaper coverage, you may remember that I have already had TWO experiences of a very trying nature. One of the undesirable features of newspaper stories of scientific work is the number of letters that come. I enclose one that came a day or two ago. Undoubtedly you have had many of a similar nature.
Very sincerely,
Rudolph J. Anderson
