Page 1Letter from Linus Pauling to Francis Crick. September 13, 1957.
Pauling writes to express his dissatisfaction with the representation of the bonding between guanine and cytosine in a recent
Scientific American article written by Crick. Pauling suggests that he and Corey have definitively shown that guanine and
cytosine are joined by three hydrogen bonds, as opposed to the two bonds depicted in Crick's article. Transcript.
