TitleLetter to Arthur James Ewins, regarding a paper 'Experimental chemotherapy of typhus Anti-rickettsial action of p-sulphonamidobenzamidine and related compounds' by Christopher Howard Andrewes, Harold King and James Walker
Date16 February 1945
DescriptionSectional Committee: Physiology

The communicator responds to the criticisms of the report. As the work covers three years, the paper 'cannot of necessity be a short one'. As for presenting the results in tabular form 'we believe this procedure, although followed in some American papers of inferior finish, and rarely adopted in German papers or elsewhere, is really false economy', and very time consuming. Thinks that publication with the results presented as they stand, is most desirable.
