Dear Mr. Marsh

I will write No -- whatever it is, to you if I choose and I do choose, especially as I wish to say that as there are no descriptive works on entomology at all available for American Specimens, if the young lady of whom you speak will send me her insect assorted I will have them named for her: at least I can do this for Coleoptera, Orthoptera, & Lepidoptera. Or I will give her names of experts with whom to correspond. If she sends anything, each order should be pinned in a separate box

Copy of report will go off in a day or two.

I wish I knew what -------------------------------- Page -------------------------------- mischief you were up to now with your new book.

Affectionately Yours

S. F. Baird note:Hon. Geo P MarshBurlingtonVt
