I have seen and admired Dr. Sabin's work extremely, indeed have had a species of sex pride in it. I wish I could know
of some position at present open for her. It is certain that if in any way she could arrange to live and work in New York,
she would win recognition among a great many people. Could she not come over and have a talk with me? There are so many things
which can only be brought out in a viva voce discussion. I should be very glad to make her acquaintance. Her "model"
made a great impression at the Neurological Society when Dr. Barker exhibited it there.
