My Dear Mr. Marsh.

Your letter of the second of October came in due time, & I have endeavored, so far in vain, to get you a copy of the report on forestry. If I mistake not it was my own notice that you saw in the Nation. I had the pamphlet, but have mislaid it. I have given your memorandum to Mr Edmunds who belongs to the ring in such matters, & he promises to get it & send to you.

Lucy thanks you very much for your kind attention in sending the Archaeological Bulletin for her perusal, & hopes to see it before a great while, although parcels by way of the State Department are sometimes as slow as those through the Smithsonian.

I do not think you have acknowledged the receipt of my big Report on the fisheries for 1871-72. Did it ever come into your hands? My second Report as Fish Commissioner will be ready to issue in a month, which will be in some re[spects] -------------------------------- Page -------------------------------- more important than the first, as it contains more of original & practical valuable information in regard to fish culture, fishways, etc.

All are well & send love.

Your very truly,

Spencer F. Baird note:Hon. Geo. P. Marsh.U.S. Minister,Rome,Italy.
