"I may say that I would not want to condense these papers into a single paper, because the subjects are different, although,
of course, closely related....You can now see that these papers really differ from one another, and that the amount of new
material is such that it would be wrong to confuse the reader by lumping everything into a single paper. We may later - without
doubt we shall - write some very detailed accounts of the whole business. I feel that this is the greatest step that has ever
been taken toward the solution of the general protein problem."
Linus Pauling. Letter from Linus Pauling to E. Bright Wilson. March 7, 1951.
