- Letter from LP to AHP. [Filed under LP Safe: Box #1.018, Folder #18.19]
Our meetings are over - before noon. Not very interesting. I went to bed early last night, and I've been reading the papers now. I think I'll have lunch and go to the Corcoran before catching the train. I just haven't felt like calling Reuben or Sterling or anyone - too lonesome to visit them without you.
Today is a warmer day - I shan't need my coat when I [on back] go to the Gallery.
I hope that you are all getting along well - especially you and your foot.
The Board was not enthusiastic about my visiting Bragg as a physicist, and prefer a chemist. When I get home I'll write at once to Tiselius [?]. You might be thinking about a second choice.
Much love from
- Letter from Linus Pauling Jr to AHP RE: Says he would have liked to see LP when he stopped in Boston. Says it's too bad the Taits are divorced. Tells her that they expect a grandchild for her in early June. He seems a bit nervous about the responsibility. Discusses the dishwashers.

December 5, 1948
It's too bad I didn't know Pop was going to stop in Boston. I would have tried to get to
the plane to see him.
It is too bad if the Taits are divorced. We have heard nothing, although we got a letter
from Alan a short time ago.
Here's some news that ought to please you early in June we expect a grandchild for
you, if everything goes well, which it has so far. We feel it's high time things got started since
we're getting no younger. Responsibility stares me in the face like a big goblin. But I hope I
can rise to the occasion. The problem at present is morning.
We're trying a Hotpoint dishwasher on our heater at 150, so it may be alright at any rate
let us know what you think.
Our love to you and the family.
