Dear Professor Baird

I have many things to say to you but a rheumatic right arm and a correspondence greatly beyond my power to keep up, compel me to limit myself to one, which is, as we say, urgente.

Certain years ago I sent to the Smithsonian a copy of Bombicci's beautiful book on mineralogy--3. vol. 8 with a request that it might be duly noticed in some scientific periodical. You acknowledged the receipt of the book & said it would be reviewed. Afterwards, you wrote me that it had been noticed in Silliman's journal in 1877, I think. Prof Bombicci has not been able to find the article. How and where can the No containing the article be procured? To gratify Prof. B. I would pay almost any price, for it, or for a copy of the article by hand

My eye rests on two No of the Municipal Arche- -------------------------------- Page -------------------------------- ology for Lucy awaiting an opportunity. In my prayers for my enemies, I always except the American Booksellers Ring which forbids books to be sent by post. I wish [...][...] Love, mine & my wife's to Mrs B. & Lucy Yours truly

G P Marsh note:Prof Baird
