Henry Oldenburg wrote to Leeuwenhoek about his doubts about globules

December 24, 1674

From Leeuwenhoek's defensive reply in Letter 9 of 1675-01-22 (AB 15), Oldenburg must have expressed his doubts about Leeuwenhoek's finding globules in so many of the things he examined. He still encouraged Leeuwenhoek and expressed his appreciation. He also passed along greetings from Thomas Willis.
