first let me allay any doubts or fears as
expressed in the first sentence of your airmail special
dated Nov. 12. I believe I got everything y u sent me.
Let me recapitulate the points raised in your letters,
telegrams, etc. You probably want to know what I have
been doing about tnese things.
Fisst. After ypur phone call Sunday I got out of
the library the Journal of American Dental Assoc. I
read the paper pretty carefully and have written you
on the subject. Though somewhat irrelevant from the
standpoint of the Emargol question, nevertheless I feel
as you evidently do,that we ought to be familiar with it
and to"know the answers" if certain questions arise.
Knowing the authors,- two of them, I yonder why they
got into the problem at all. In connection with this
article, I have gotten one of the more pertinent references
which they give and I also hope to have in my hands the
J.Dental Research Feb.1939 4o in which they also published
on this subject.
I knew that Dreft was not pure lauryl sodium sulfate.
I am glad to have information as to other components as
given in yours of the 12th. However, it was something that
i had immediately availabel and until your stuff came I could
make some sort of a start, even if I later found that I
had to disregard the expt. I am working on the principle that
time is the essence.
Two After your phone call Sunday I wrote you a letter
which I hope you have received. I also went down to the
postoff ice and got you airmail dated Nov. 8 to which you
referred in your phone conversation. Since then I received
your telegram of Monday relative to pe absence of free
sulfate in your monostearine compd. I replied to this also
by wire the same night.
Three I have received your letter of Nov. 11 enclosing
the sodium and potassium salts of lauryl sulfoacetate. I have
just received your letter of the 12th together with a sample
of sodium lauryl sulfate.
