Dr. G. B. Heisig

Dear Dr. Heisig:
My answer to your letter of October 8 has been delayed, in part by my absence on a trip, and in part by my difficulty in getting caught up in work after my return.
The point that you raise about the tervalent oxidation state of nickel is a very good one. I had tried to check back on the source of my information in writing my freshman text, and I regret to say that the older sources that I used were not checked by me before the book was published. I shall make the change in the book as soon as possible, and I express my thanks to you for raising this point.
- Letter from LP to Dr. George G. Wright RE: Replies that he is enclosing the manuscript of his Denaturation Paper IV, and he did not check and calculations but it looked reasonable, o he should send it in for publication. Apologizes for being so slow, explains he was on trips, mentions that he made a few minor corrections and suggestions on the manuscript, and says that it is fine for him to charge the lot of reprints to the Institute. Explains that he is leaving again in December, and that Wright should let him know of any change in his situation. [Letter from Wright to LP October 1, 1947] [Filed under LP Correspondence: 443.15]
