Dear Mr. Marsh:

I enclose a sample of coral bead, such as [is] in great demand among the North American Indians, & I would be much obliged if you will find out in any way the name of the makers in Italy--possibly somewhere on the Mediterranean--& the cost per string of definite length or number.

We are preparing a grand crusade against the possessions of -------------------------------- Page -------------------------------- the Indians of New Mexico, & are assured that beads of this kind are the best material we can have for trade. There is nothing specially new at the present time. The re-organization of the National Museum promises to be a great success, & the collection will, I think, attract deserved attention.

With love for Mrs. Marsh, believe me,

Sincerely yours,

Spencer F Baird
Hon. Geo. P. Marsh.
