Dr. J. J. R. MacLeod,
University of Toronto,
Dear Dr. MacLeod:
We certainly appreciate your kindness in sending us the telegram outlining the important features of the biological meetings which have Just been held at your University. It was extremely helpful. We looked upon that meeting with a great deal of anticipation and if there had not been a thirty ring circus, as it were, in progress at the American Association meeting in Boston, either Dr. Slosson or I would certainly
have been at Toronto. As it was, however, I persuaded Dr. Brooks of the Hygienic Laboratory here to keep us in touch with the meeting and he worked with Dr. S. E. Pond of the Nela Park Research Laboratory and so was able to send us some material on the meeting.
We handled a story on the insulin symposium by telegraph and also repeated it in our mail service. This is enclosed for your information.
I am arranging to see Dr. Evans here in Washington today so that we may get full details on the interesting disclosures that he made. I am also taking the liberty of writing to the other speakers that you mentioned in your telegram and I am sure that your information will lead to an excellent series of stories in our service.
Is there someone in your laboratory or among your students who would be interested in keeping us in touch with the various events of scientific interest which are continually happening at Toronto? If there is, we should like to be put in touch with him. I also hope that through such a correspondent or directly you will keep us in mind whenever you publish anything more on the important researches that you are making.
Congratulations on the progress that the insulin treatment is making and many good wishes for the year that has just begun.
