NOANK,
New London Co, Conn. August, 17, 1874.



My Dear Mr Marsh.

I have Yours of the 21st of July, & sincerely hope that your visit to Bonn may give you the desired relief from your physical troubles.

We are still at this Station, carrying on our deep sea work, which is extremely pleasant & productive, & will, I think, in its results, vindicate the propriety of having scientific labors executed by scientific men; not by me particularly but by my Colleagues, such as Profs. Verrill, Hyatt, Bessels etc.

The newspapers came safely and are duly transmitted to Lucy who is at North Conway.

With many thanks for this & other favors, believe me,

Sincerely Yours,

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