Date15 October 1949
DescriptionHe encloses his report on the paper. Although his comments should be sent, he wishes for his name not be shared with the author. He can't understand why the author didn't refer top his published work on the same subject. He cannot allow himself to be prejudiced by this and the author's methods might be superior to his.
