Dear Genl

Yours of the 26th ult was received in due course by mail. It will take Prof: Baer, a month or more, to label the minerals; as he is nearly eighty years of age. When the labeling is completed, I will see to it, that the minerals are forwarded to you, by the routes you have designated. With high regard, I Am

your obedient servant
