Transcription Notes:
There are a few proper names that are difficult to read. Mr. Baekeland's wife was named "Celine" and his daugher was "Nina". I used these to made a few guesses. -KFS Agree that it looks like Nina, but Celine looks a lot like Pauline or even Lauline as his handwriting is inconsistent. -SF Edited lin to him in sentence "answered him accordingly." Makes more sense to me. -JJL Celine and Nina are correct spellings of LHB's wife and daughter (my mother's grandmother and mother) HK Toch is Maximillian Toch, friend of LHB. HK
