TitleLetter from Otto [Edholm], Royal Veterinary College and Hospital, Camden Town, London NW1, to Henry Barcroft
Date15 November 1946
DescriptionThanks him for his letter and is glad to know the meeting was a success. Is relieved by Barcroft's suggestion regarding adrenaline electrophoresis and skin blood flow. Has been 'chopping away' at the paper but 'it really is rather a mess without the quantitiative work'. Describes in detail the experimental techniques. Is glad to hear of Barcroft's upcoming trip to the States as 'it is very important for us to see what they are doing'. Informs Barcroft that Hartridge 'is leaving Barts' and that he has been invited to take his place - plans on going to Canada however - asks if Barcroft has thought about going to Barts, as he was previously considered a successor to Lovatt Evans.
