Pasteur wrote this letter to Emile Roux requesting him to send vaccine to Joseph Lister. Translation: August 8, 188[?] My Dear Roux, Do not bother about that affair of Sarda. I have sent the box for which he asked from Carcassone. I have just written to Lister and had the idea of promising him two vaccinations of the maximum strength yet made for his use in surgery. Can you send him this--you ought to have something at hand of that strength. Best wishes, L. Pasteur. In 1886, Lord Lister was appointed to an English commission charged with investigating Pasteur’s rabies vaccinations.
