Dear Mr Marsh.

Yours of February 26, is to hand. I will do what I can to secure a satisfactory notice of the Professor's works in Mineralogy.

The pamphlet mentioned in your letter has also been received & turned over to Lucy as an exercise in Italian. She has been studying that language quite diligently for a year or two past.

I send you a series of the Circulars relating to the Smithsonian display at the Centennial.

Sincerely Yours,

S F Baird
Hon. George P. Marsh.

The Am. consul at Venice has sent me some Venetia beads--not yet here
