Flexner was director of the Rockefeller Institute from 1901 to 1935. In this letter he encourages Sabin to think about joining
the Rockefeller staff: "Something fundamental should be done about the anemias and leukemias, and you are the best person
to do it."

Dear Dr. Sabin:
I am encouraged to send you a reprint now twenty years old, which you will not find very complete, but which shows at least
one way of stirring up the blood forming organs. Undoubtedly other ways can be found.
This was a first publication on the subject and led to others which, however, do not exactly apply to what we have spoken
I do hope that you may really take my suggestion into account. Something fundamental should be done about the anemias and
leukemias, and you are the best person to do it.
I am really thrilled by the possibility. I shall be in Baltimore before long and mean to talk with you further.
