My Dear Merrlam:- 



In reply to yoxir favor of the 27th. will say that the 
skvills were all froB the Kenai Peninmila* Yoiirs of the 29th. is also 
at hand and I note your appreciation of the photos. You are right when 
you think it quite a task for me to secure the photos of the White 
Sheep. I wa8 compelled to stay out for three day and nights above timber 
line and without any wood for fire^ but I got *e«« 



YeStI l:iave some Moose and sheep heads for saletbutfH^ good 
fellow, I want you to know that they are not of nor own killing for I 
have never, in all my life, killed heads or game for sale, except those 
sent to the National Museimi. It is entirely against ny principles* 
The heads which I have are some that I bought from Indians and white 



\ 



il 



h\mt»r« while »jp there thta season. I herewith encloae jou a price Hat 
and aflffiire you I appreciate your very kind offer. 

Rvrythlng I killed thla year I went to the Muaeiai and I would 
have given coaslderaule to have killed \loose with larger headn.out I 
done my best and only killed the largeat I saw and himted hard for 
twenty one days, however those I sent are considerable abova the average 
Of course I would have gladly put in one or two of the heads that I 
bought .Which were a little larger than those I sent the Miiseia »tmt ^liy 
dear boj,I did not have the skin that grew with that particular head 
and I knew that the Miiseivn certalnlj did not want that kind of a deal. 
What I sent them was the skln^ bone, horn and hair of the Individual 
just as he fell. If they should want to mount different skin and head. 
I will gladly send them a 67 Inch head .but this would not Mdi^ an 
honest specimen when mounted. 



Wishing you many happy returns of the New Year. I remain. 

Very truly yours.

Dr C, Hart Merriam, 



Washington, D.C. 
My Dear Merriajn:- 

I have not heard from or of you since your visit here at 
my home, other than indirectly through the columns of Pores t and 
Stream. T note that you were not successful in corraling the elk 
that you so much desired to transplant on a different reservation* 
However, I hope that you will be able to succeed in bringing this 
about at some future time* T am glad that you were able to procure 
some specimens of this new species and , no doubt, they will be 
mounted for your new museiim tliat we poor chaps who will never 
want to hunt them in their native 77ild8 will be permitted to see 
them under glass cases* 

What has become of our mutual friend, Prof. ¥an de Man ? 
I have not heard from him for some time and ask if you will kindly 
give me his address* I know that his former home was in Virginia, 
but believe that he now lives in Washington* 



.J • -.» 



Dr C.H.M.-2 

Please accept the enclosed complimentary which I am very 
glad to hand you, and will write you later regarding the organizat- 
ion of this Club of which 1 am founder and want to have you as one 
of US. I shall be glad to hear from you at any time. 

Mrs De Weese joins me in sending lore and kindest regards 
to both you and Mrs Merriam. She often speaks of our stay in Wash- 
ington and recalls with pleasant recollections our nice visit at 
your home and your company to the Zoo. In fact, this was the last 
time that we have seen Prof. Van de Man. 

Should you make a trip to any part of the We»t this year, 
be sure and bring Mrs Merriam with you and stop with us. 




Yours very truly,

Dr. C, Hart Merriam, 

Washington, D. C. $5 BIOL 
My deer Mr, Merriam;- 

Your letter of sometime ago received, l:)ut like many of my 



love letters I have let it go "by unanswered until after the holiday 
season as I did not think ray reply was pressing. I assure you that I 
am very glad to hear from you and I note that you make inquiry as to 
whether or not I have received any authentic information regarding 
the existence of moose in Colorado. In reply will say that some three 
or four years ago a friend of mine told me that he saw a moose in 
the Had Desert which lies in the northwestern corner of this State. 
For your information I will say regarding this desert that it is not 
altogether a desert plain for there are three or four creeks running 
through it, very heavily timbered and both you and I well kno?/ that 
moose could not he ranging in an antelope country. I can very easily 



■■MNHMMMMMMlaa 



So 2 



/ 



see the possibility of moose migrating from Idaho and taking up their 
hahitat in that locality. When in California last winter I met this 
friend and had another talk with him one evening at dinner in the St. 
Francis Hotel, and he still thought there were moose in the Red 
Desert country. My friend's name is Frank Mayer who is the present 
editor of the Western Field. You have no douht seen the magazine 
many times. Don't understand me to say that I don't believe Mr. 
Stayer's statement hut I am inclined to helieve that he was mistaken 
in what he saw. A young hull elk could very easily he taken for a 
moose if seen at some little distance. I have asked several cow boys 
who I know have ridden considerable in that country. They say they 
have seen no moose. Asto my own opinion it would be worth nothing for 
I can say as I said before how probable it would be for a stray moose 
to get in there from the Idaho country, yet at the present time 5* 

doubt if there is one there now. 

I returned six weeks ago from Newfoundland where I had been 
on a caribou hunt. I succeeded in getting three very handsome stags 
and prepared them for mounting whole and I propose to present two of 
them to the ftate Museum. By the way I still have that two year old 
"Ovis Helsoni" ram for you if you care for it and have a place that 
it will fit in a group. I will send it along if you so desire. 

Friend Merriam you know that I had graduated from the Head 
Hunting Class some years ago and on my recent hunts I have always 
took measurements and preserved the whole specimen, and I am doing 

« 

everything I can to help build up our ^tate Museum. 



50 3 



I latend to go to Idaho sometime and shoot a good big elk 
and giye its skin and my record head to our State Museum for } think 
it a ahoie that suoh specimens should be hung up in a private col- 



lection. 



Mr. Merriam I am satisfied that this elk of mine is not the 



i 
1 



comDon run of elks. There must be two or three species of our 

American TTapiti. The spread of the beam is different, the shape of 

the brow points are different, and the royal and back tines are also 

different. They differ in size, in shape and in the manner in which 

they leave the main beam. I have never seen but one, in the head lite 

it, and that one I have in my possession which was killed by a 

friend of mine near Hans Peak in the Rabbit Ear range which is the 

Southwest boundary of Korth Park. Colorado. This head has seven 

prongs to each beam, the royal tine on the right beam broken off 

about half its length, this set of horns in every way resemble 

those on my big head, both of which have that unusual corrugation 

or roughness. This animal was killed some twenty years ago about 

the time that I shot mine on the head of the South Fork of White 

River, this State. I don't know If the plains elk and the mountain 

elk have been differently classified or not, but there is just as 

much difference between these two heads and the common run of elk 

as there is between our mountain elk and the elk of the Olympha 

Mountains, Washington. Have you ever given this any thdught or 

consideration? If so I would be pleased to have your views. 

I Intend to make another hunting trip to Alaska some day 

and J want to get a big bull moose to add to the group they propose 

to mount in our State Museum. The one they have I consider a very 

inferior specimen. I must get him from the i^y,^^ ^ 

Aenai Peninsula. 



lo 4 




When I am reedy to start you must help me to get the 
necessary permit to bring home the stuff from that locality for 
our state. Will you do it? You know I don't want to shoot a 
moose for myself. I would not do so if I had the chance for I 
have killed enough for any one white man, but in all my future 
hunts, while I will get a little sport out of them I want to 
help build up our Museum, 

I now want to write you something strictly confi- 
dential. Please do not divulge ft to any of my hunting friends 
as yet. I am thinking very strong of making a hunting trip to 
Africa this coming season. Should I go do you think there la 
anything that I could do for our national Museum? I have thought 
of going in the Uganda country north of the railroad, possibly 
towards or back of Lake Rhudolf. Can you give me any pointers? 
I should be very glad to hear from you at your convenience. 

Mrs. Deweese joins me in sending kindest regards to 
both you and yours, fishing you a prosperous year, I am. 

Tours Yexy truly.

I thank you for your very kind letter of the 6th inst. 



I also 



received a letter this A. !• from your worthy secretary Mr, Loeh dated 
the 8th which enclosed a communication from Dr. C. Hart Merriara dated the 
7th. I herewith return the same. I note that Mr. Merriam says that there 
has "been no expedition planned by the government to Africa and that the 
report is erroneous. I also enclose you a letter from my old time friend 
David G. Weems , 85 William Stree New York which was written me January 
19th. He knew I was figuring somewhat on an African trip hence his let- 
ter. In it you will see how my idea was prompted to write you as I did 
on February 2d as he says he saw the report in the Hew York World. \ hope 
you will mail M r. Weem s letter to Mr. Merriam that I may be set right with 
him. I am glad Mr. Weems letter failed to find its way into my waste 



#2 . 



tasket es it will vindicate me of any presiunptuouaness on my part in 
writing you as I did February Ed. 

After receiving his letter I thought if the government intended 

on sending an expedition of this kind that I would like to accompany it 

to pack in the elephant, rhino, hippo, etc. that others might shoot, but 

as this report was a wild goose chase I suppose I will have to hike out 

to Africa alone and hope for a more correct government report later. 

Pardon my encroachment on your time during these busy days and 
believe me, 



Yours most sincerely.

My Dear Dr I^erriam:- 

I assure you that I vbb very glad to have your letter of the 
2nd instant and am glad to know that you are still a very busy man. It 
is hect for us- wo would get into mischief othenvise. 

I also assure you that I would like very much to step into 
your a-partmont at the new museum and see those 100 or more Alaska 
bear skulls on your table. It certainly muct bo a very interesting site. 

ITo, I :;ave not made any very erter.oive trips lately. Three 
years ago, I went to Newfoundland and brou,<rht back three Carribou stags, 
ily last two trips have beer in Old Mexico and lower California for the

range. I nov/ have the!': from the Arties to the Southern limits* 

You say in jOtir letter that you still have my hig Alaska 
Brown Bear shull, and that in your notes you find that I shot 
him September 7, 1897 in the Heane hills, and you suppose the Heane 
hills are a part of ITenai peninsula^ You are quite right in that 
stateinent. Hov;ever, if I v/rote you this statement, the stenographer 
made a mistalie in spelling the Heane Kills; it should he the "Ilenai 
Mountains" on the I^enai Peninsula, which lies midway between lake 
Tuskunania and lake Kenai* I think the exact spot is shown on the 
map I made you on my trip in 1898 • 

How, My Dear loan; I shall be very gird indeed to Iniow in 
which class you place this skull. You know I have my mind made up 
about the iladiali bear and on the extent of its range; so I want 
you to hand it down to me hard and give rro yo^ir honest opinion. 

By the way, L!r. P.oosevelt has had a great trip and most suc- 
coGsful in every way. "Ye godo and little fishes", if some more of us 
had a small pittance in which to cover part of the same country. I hope 
to be able to do so sometime in the nerr future. How, I am her:rt and 
soul in the midst of an irrigation ente'r-- rise here that will see my 
finish. But, just as well wear out at this, I guess, as climbing hills 
or crosc.ing plains to murder sore poor hrrmles. creature. As I grow 
older, I get less inclined to take the life of this branch of our an- 
cestors. However, I am not conscious smitten as I j.ave never been a 



butcher

My dear Mr. Merriam:- 

Absence from home delayed my answer to your 
veiy kind letter of the 14th inst. I have bee-, in the mountains 
over on Grand River, and I assure you I was very glad to hear trom 
you once more. 

Now ray dear man, with reference to grizzilie 
bear skulls, will say that at one time several years ago I had foirr 
or five unusually good skulls, but I got tired of seeing them around 
and I gave them away to first one and then the other, and now I have 
not one left in ray collection except one that is mounted in a lug. 

Wo, neither do I happen to know of any one that 
has a Plains Grizzily skull. I remember of attdnding the funeral of 
one of these bears in 1876 near the mouth o^ the Cimarron ^iver, but 
I have never seen or heard or one since. However, there weie a great 
many of these bea.rs killed in northern Nebraska and southern Dakota 
on the plains several years later than that, but really I would not 
know where to turn to secure one now, 

I should be very glad to render you some assist- 
ance were it possible. However, should you oon^plete your work I would

be very glad to receive a 



copy 



I do not know where I will go to r my next vacation. 
I had thought some or making a trip to the HTCI^HT OP LWD, which 
would be on the head waters of the Prazier, Peace, Nesse and south 
fork of the Stickiene Rivers. I have never heard of anybody hunting 
through there and as this would be the northern limit of the Wapati, 
Black Tailed Deer and a meeting place of the "Ovis Montana" and 
•Ovis Stonei'', I thought it would be a very interesting country. 
Have you ever had a man up through this section and have you got 
another map that might give me some inrormation or if you know of a 
copy in print I would be veiy glad to pay for one. 

Both Mrs. DeWeese and rryself would be very glad to 
have you stop off and see us at any time you happen through this 
way. We both send kindest regards to yourself and family.

I returned yesterday and your letter reached me this morning. I thank 
you y^r^ much for your very kind letter and I note thst you are about

an earlier date, for I fear you may have started on your trip. How- 
ever, my letter will be reforwarded ahead of you. no douot, where you 
will pick it up at some point on the trail. 

I have just received a letter from A. ¥. »elson of

the maps which you requested him to do. I shall write hlia.

arzange for »e to make tay trip through the Sorth this aimer and faU. 
but I desire to poet layeelf on the locality, so that I can hare every- 
thing well in mind at any time that I might be able to arrange a trip. 

I have some parties whom l would like for you to call 
on. should your route lead you through the towns in which they live, 
iirst. if you should happen to come through Troy. Ohio, be sure to 
call on Honorable A. F. Broomhall. Attorney, an old friend of mine. 
who will treat you royally, bhould you come through Omaha, be sure 
to call on my daughter, Mrs. E. B. Towle. S105 Lewey Avenue, and

you had decided on a northern route through Wyoming ITational Park, 
thence westward.

I found some petrified and agatized bone of the dinosaurus, I think 
not long ago, also some stones of an ancient Jurassic period I guess. 
However I would like for you to send me any pamphlets descriptive 
of these prehistoric animals that you may be able to get in the

the Globe. This has been a side issue with me from my regular en- 
gineering and construction work. 

In this vicinity I have found fossil remains (petrified) 
of the supposed Dinosaurus or other saurian species. Also, I be«- 
lieve,from those of the Dinornis and the Pterdact-yl. I have located 
two or three different fossil beds in this locality, and have done

after I have sent you a description later of just what I propose the book 



to be. 



it will not only be interesting reading for the old or middle aged 
but especially for the young child in school. 

It will describe animals truthfully, and hon^st-to-Sod, with all 
fiction eliminated in ray narrating a short hunt for a specirten of each 
specie securing in a period covering fifty years of my life. 



I have two men in mind that I would aek to do thist one is your- 
self and the other is Dr. David Starr Jordan of leland Stanford University 
California whom I know quite well. 

I know of two others whom you think I should ask to write it. 



one of whom is our 



authority on game animals, but I have a reason 



for not asking him which I will tell you the next time I oome east, as I 
intend to look you up on that trip. 

I would please like our correspondence concerning my work treated 
confidentially, as it is not know outside of my family that I am planning 
this woiic« 

I hope this finds you well and happy and that each member of your 
family are en^joying the same blessing. 

Yours very sincerely,

Dear Dr. Merriam: 

It has been seTeral Bontlie since I wrote you about writing a forward 
for a book which I wm coipliling. However other duties have taken 
up my time, but I expect to finish it up this winter, and within a 
month or so, I will seal you a copy of the Introduction and one of my 
other articles, that you may see what it is like, and decide if it 
is worthy of a forward from you which I would be glad to have. 

Per your informtion will say that I am leaving for Jackson Hole Wyoming 
to look over the elk situation and hay lands of the Izaak Walton league 
to try and deteradne a feasible end practical solution of a national 

Game Refuge in that vicinity, 

I am enclosing you a copy of the DalJ. DeWees^ Plan for such a Refuge 
and hope that you will find time to read it over carefully, and after 
you have picked it to pieces and thought it over, let me know your 
views concerning it. 

I do not know your whereabouts at the present time, but presume you 
will return to your home in lashing ton after your si^-inmer observation 
field work. 

Trusting this finds you well end happy and that I may hear from you, 
I send best wishes and kindest personal regards. 

Yours very sine ere 1;%

1919 Sixteenth Street, 
Washington, D* C* 

1^ dear Dr* Merriam: 

I waa off at the cantonment at Camp Kearny, having an inter- 
eating time photographing the war work there, when your generous package 
of "separates'* arrived and I have been so busy with development and 
printing of ny negatives since my return that I only now sit down to 
thank you for your eourtesy in sending me so many of the results of 
your work. This morning, to w^ surprise and delight, your fauna on 
the gritslies reaehed me. I shall work through it with keen interest. 
Generally it is about a year after they are off the press before I 
spot the Biological Survey and Smithsonian publications, so it is 
a pleasure to be able to see this so promptly* 

Within a week I hope to send you some bromide enlargements 
of some of my wild game negatives. The deer have been mostly photo* 
graphed from a canoe at night in the old time way which we all owe to 
ShiraSs The bear was one which we baited up to a set camera (fired 
by the bear himself with trip thread) one year in the northern penin« 
aula of Michigan when blueberries were particularly searee and the 
bears consequently peculiarly amenable to bait seduction. I got two 
corking plates there in two nights and a third chance which turned out 
a failure* 

Things are too tmse ttled in these days to be certain of 
plans but I shall look forward to seeing you without fail this next 
year in case your swing around the circle brings you to Pasadena* 
My draft board has slapped me in class 5 and they have pretty thor- 
oughly turned me down on the volunteer basis, even f6r special work 
so it is hi^ly improbable that I will be off for the war at least 
for a year or so* Thers is Just a possibility of my coming to Wash* 
ington in the late spring or early summers Do you come west before 
that time? 

Thanking you again for your generous response in the 
matter of separates, etc., and begging that you extend the kindest 
regards of both my mother and myself to your fsimily, I remain. 



Very sincerely yours.

p.s. 

Am I correct in the belief that you have turned over or disposed 
of your mammal collection to the department? I had a rather longer series of 
Aplodontias from the Ma mmoth country in the Sierras than I needed and 
I thought if you were still adding to your private collection and cared for 
them I would send them along.

Dr. C, Hart Merriam, 
c/o Biological Survey, 
Washington, U. C. 

Ify dear Dr« Merriaia: 

I let the days go by this fall after ny return from the 
east thinking that either 1 would be able to work in a trip to 
6an Francisco or that you would be coming down this way on your 
way east but with the coming of December I realize that you are 
probably long ago in Washington and that my change uf seeing you 
is gone for the year. Both Mother and I are sorry you did not 
come this way — she because it deprived her of an opportunity 
of reminiscing about one of the happiest summers of her life — « 
I because I was most anxious to have you here at the house and 
show you some of the photographs and the collection of California 
birds and mammals I have been getting together in the last four 
or five years as a side issue in the photographic game« I have 
something over four thousand specimens now and it really makes 
quite a decent representation of the smaller land mammals and 
birds of the state. By the way, a chap who was helping me last 
summer got me half a dozen llicrodipodops and one of the iShrew 
Moles from up in the Modoc region. Vy representation is getting 
complete enough so that additions of that sort ol new species 
to iBy collection quite thrill me. 

Before the outbreak of the war I had been working over 
«y library quite a bit, getting together as many of the working 
pamphlets and books as I could get hold of. Expecting to go into 
service I dropped the matter for the time being but as I have now 
been turned down about four times i realize that for the present 
my chances for that sort of work are slim and as a result am pick- 
ing up the photographic and collecting threads again. After tak- 
ing several weeks to get my courage up, I am writing to some of 
the men in Washington and New xork on the chance of their having 
some duplicate**separates'of their published works which they could 
spare. I do not presume to bother you to go over your material 
with this in view but if you come across anything of the sort of 
your own work which you have in duplicate, I should be most grate- 
ful to be borne in mind. I had thought of bothering Messrs. Allen, 
Bailey, Qoldman and G« S» Miller and have already written Mr. Nelson* 
Do you think of any other men who might have duplicate material of 
that sort and who would not feel insulted to be pestered by an 
unknown Westerner? Mr. Osgood and Mr» Bangs turned a deaf ear 
to a similar appeal from a. B. Howell, a friend of mine here who 
has done some rather serious collecting and who wrote them along 
similar lines last year, so I have intentionally omitted their 
names from the above list. 

With sincere regards to yourself and family, I remain, 

Sincerely yours, ^ m

Dr. C. Hart Merriam, 

1919 Sixteenth St., 
Was hingt on , D • C . 

My dear Dr. Merriam: - 

It is with profuse apologies that, with the armistice 
duly signed,! find, on returning home, the photographs still here which I 
promised you more than a year ago. Soon after that promise and before my 
part of it was carried out I wandered off to a ranch in an endeavor to 
get fat enough to persuade^ha?^?FfiIfi?ftg of some years l>oth in photography 
and military rifle shooting was not to be as lightly thrown aside as they 
at first thought proper. My of fort was so far successful that on my tenth 
physical examination I was passed and duly recommended as snipiag officer & Capt. 
after some months 'training at the sniping school at Camp Perry, Ohio. 
But it all came too late to be more than a futile waste of time and so I 
am back ho^ne for a time. With my return here came the realization of many 
obligations unfulfilled. Among them I remember my promise in regard to photos to you 
and in consequence I am forwarding you a few of my prints left over from pre-war 
stock with the hope that they may interest you during some one of the moments of re- 
we all have coming to us after the unpleasantness of the last months and 
years. Accept them with no thought of the slightest indebtedness, since they 
are simply scattering duplicate prints left over from pre-war stocks. Things 
are so unsettled in the world that it seems problemetical when one can 
return to things of that sort. It is therefore a double pleasure to be able 
to send you some of the fragments of an era in my life that is linked rather 
more with your name than you, perhaps, realize, for I always attribute my turning 
to the out-of-doors, which in pre-war days meant so much to me, to the fortuitous 
circumstances that threw me, as hero-worshiper, at the feet of John Muir and 
yourself in the Sierran summer of 1902, and in lesser degree to Roosevelts 
early writings. Accept them, therefore, without even the necessity of undue 
acknowledgment on your part and remember that my Mother and myself still look 
forward to someday kid-napping you in transit and having you here at the 
house where my collections have grown to 4000 or so birds and mammals and 
where nearly a like number of bird and mammal ne^^atives mi^ht amuse you for 
an evening or so. 

The adu]t fox is U.c« californious taken by himself as he tugged 
at the bait of a ''set" camersT Tiigh in the transition zone of the Ventura Co. 
mountains here in California. The brush of this individual is the most remark- 
able of ny eiiperience with th'' species. To appreciate its luxurience one 
must remember the fore :^ ho rtening effect of a comparatively short lens. 
The cub fox is of the same species made by his brother at the mouth of their 
den in the foothills back of the Ojai Valley, Calif . This youngster happened 
to be in such striking E.Seton T. pose that I utilized only a square inch or 
so of the original plate in composing this particular print. The original 
full plate shows three cubs in all but the position of this chap seemed 
worth perpetuating alone by enlargment. The cat is L.e.eremicus^ presumably,

since it was an individual that fired a"set",or "trap" camera baited with a young 
rabbit on the edge of the Colorado Desert ner^r Yuma. The White-tail Buck is from 
a negative obtained in the sane way - - that is by a "set" camera with the trip 
thread strung across a Mew Brunswick deer "lead". The ttark of the thread is 
discernible across the forehead above the eyes. The conventional Shiras method of 
game photography with canoe and "Jack" generally gives more alert and interesting 
poses from the photographic stand poind, but I must cAnfeas to a love of the occasional 
success from this "set" camera work. Tlhen one does get a good thing in this way it is 
less alert and changing possibly but it has the charm of the utterly natural, since 
man is miles away in be^^like as not at the time, and the camera has been set long 
enough for the scent to wear off. I have always thou|.>:ht that the photographic skin 
of Africa had hardly been scratched fcr the reason that no really efficient line 
of these set cameras has ever been worked there for any considerable period. 
Even Dugmore had to make up for the deficiency of his outfit by his courage and 
hardship in personal vigil. The bear is from a neg. made in the same way of a 
fine old chap that came to a bread and molasses "lead" in the northern penn. of 
Michigan. This is one of three chances I have had at bear - - - al ' of them, black. 
Avoiding the parks as I would the plague and never having had the luck to work in 
Alaskn my chances with them have been limited. This chap came on a fogg^/ night 
and it is interesting to note the superficial character of the condensation on his 
pelage. Underneath he is apparently as dry as a bug in a rug. 

The "reat Blue Heron was made \r. the more conventional Shiros method of "jacking 
from a canoe. Locality - headwaters of the Tobique River in New Brune. 
The other two birds are from negs. that I consider sunong the lu^^kiett of my take. 
I was making a series of the r parent Black-headed Grosbeak (Z.m.c apitalis ) on her 
nest in the Ojai Valley, Vent. Co. when the bird left, the nest""f'Fr"a few moments. 
During her absence the Calif. Jay (A.c. californica ) represented in the second photo 
sneaked to the nest and seized an e'ggT Since the camera was already loaded and 
focused on the nest in anticipation of the Grosbeak's return I was luckily able 
to perpetuate the theft. 



With sincere b6st wishes to Mrs. Merriam and your daughter and the 
repeated hope that you may some dav favor us with a day in the course of >our 
journevings, and repetition oT^^fSttP groerous pkg. of "separates" forwarded to me 
last year. I re^in.

Uy dear Dr# Merriam: 

Just a line to express my pleasure and 
appreciation for the trouble you took with me Sunday last* 
As I said, the danger of working off alone in the wilds of Calif •, 
lies in the lack of stimulus arising from contact T.lth better 
minds in one*sown specialty. That stimulus I al^mys get 
in a peculiar way from you and from George Cillery Bale and 
a very few others among those who have arrived* I imagine it 
is due more than anything to the way you can still bubble 
over with a positive ten-year-old enthusiasm for pure science 
and especially the problem of the hour, I alT/ays come away 
from you all boosted up for another endurance test with 
irtiatever may be the problem of my hour* Thanks i 

Found I had 15' more than I had thought, so I caught 
my train all right, but with no great time to spare* 



Very sincerely.

Dr. C. Hart Merriam, 
1319 - 16tb Street, 
Waahlngtcn, D. C. 

Hy deer Dr. aerriem:- 

It was something of a shock to receive 
your letter of February 24th, and to learn that you 
had had a siege in the hospital since I saw you in 
Washington. You seemed so emininently well at that 
tiae, but perhaps your invariable energy is mis- 
leading in that regard. In any event, it is a 
delight to know that the weakness has been eradicated 
and that you are back on the job by thic time. 

The clipping In reference to old Juncio 
was, I realixed, of little definite value to you, but 
I thought he might have been one of the oldtims In« 
diana with whom yo\* had come in contact, and whose 
passing would interest you. 

Ever since my afternoon with you in 
Washington, I have been mulling over your simplified 
aystec of filing published material and notes, geo- 
graphically and specifically. It delights me so 
wher restricted to the working library of one indivi- 
dual who does his own refiling, that I imagine I 
shall copy you, with your permission, when my own 
card aysteiL is deposited, as I intend it shall be, 
for the general use of those working with vertebrates 
in Southern California. I have always wondered just 
what would happen when ray own card references left my 
house, and I imagine that the installation of your 
syst^a for my own personal use at home will be my 
JBode of filling the void left by the departure of m^^ 
card ayetot. Meantime, since ray intention is to make 
my references available for anyone working in the 
vertebrate field, I suppose I shall have to continue 
the analyzed cross-reference card system, with all its 
''•■i^ications and nuisances. I so particularly appre- 
ciated the manner in which you get a double check for

quick filing bj- using a split guide in addition 
to your folders, with visible tabs in each case, 
that I would like a sample of your style of 
guide and folder so as to procure the same type 
in case I do instal your system for home use. 
Don't bother about it in this first rush of your 
retiurn to work, but if you think of it anytinie 
when you happen to be at the office, I would, as 
I say, appreciate it if you would have your 
stenographer send me a sample of each style. 

The irnmediate future looks rather 
interesting here on the Coast. In the museum 
developraeut here in California, I have, of course, 
been keen to see a department permitting actual 
research established in connection either with the 
Los Angeles Museum, or with the Southwest. Because 
of political control, it seems hardly feasible to 
attempt that sort of thing in connection with the 
County Museum, and it is therefore with particular 
delight that I have witnessed the enbrjronic in- 
auguration of that idea at the Southwest since n^ 
return from the East. It is, of oourse, nothing 
more than a latent possibility. But they are now 
in the midst of a campaign for funds, and, contingent 
upon the success of that campaign, they expect to 
establish laboratory, office, and case room on 
rather a decent scale. It is a thing of such vital 
interest to me that I have thrown in my lot with 
thera, in the hope of helping in a snail way to 
bring the thing to fruition. I have always felt 
that if I had any distinct "call", it was to help 
in the coordination of the scattered scientific 
work which is now going on to rather a surprising 
extent in the garages, cellars, and bedrooms of 
this vicinity. In any event, the organization 
attempt will be interesting, so I am tackling it 
with the keenest enthusiasm, in spite of the 
haziness which, of course, still envelopes the 
ultimate result.

Things never come singly, and it is one 
of the misfortunes of the plan that it will nec- 
essitate my refusal of a tentative scheme of Mr. 
Nelson* 8, which is perhps even more directly in 
line with my chief interests • If he can get the 
cash, he intends to inaugurate a program of special 
habit study with the big game, and was good enough 
to think of me in nonnuction with the job, but, 
because of the developments here, I will have to 
give up any thought of that sort of thing for a 
couple of years. 

One thing I meant to check up on that 
afternoon in Washington was the filing (classifi- 
cation) system you follow with your mammals. In 
my Collection Catalogue, the birds fall naturallj ' 
into a system that permits of ready reference, 
largely because of everyone •s familiarity with the 
A.O.U. order. But my mammal catalogue has always 
been hazy in my own mind, and ij still far from 
adapted to quick reference. Do you disregard your 
Orders entirely, and simply utilize the generic 
names in alphabetical order, or do you use an alpha- 
betical arrangement of the genera within the Order, 
or do you maintain a definite systematic classifica- 
tion in your catalogue and reference files? Either 
of the latter systems would have a certain educative 
value for the assistants handling my files, in ease 
they go on deposit at the museum, but, as I say, my 
attempts to work out a combination of ready reference 
and automatic relation education have not been satis- 
factory to date. Whose classification to follow in 
case I continue something of this kind seems to be 
one of the stumbling blocks. 

Had you happened to hear of the death of 
John Lewis Childs on his way back East, after a short 
visit to theCoast? It came as quite a shock to me, 
for he was with us at a little bird-talk I gave at' 
the Southwest a week ago Thursday, and seemed in good 
shape then, and as enthusiastic about bird matters, 
in a general way, as ever. 

With kindest remembrances to Mrs. Merriam, 
and Zenaida from ny mother and myself, I am 

Yours very sincerely.

Dr. C. Hart Merriam,

Vty dear Dr. Merriam:- 

Your letter of March 26, in reply to 
my recent inquiry with reference to the exact filing guidea 
and envelopes which you employed, and which I found it hard 
to carry in mind, has come aafely to hand, together with 
the samples which you so kindly furnished me. Accept my 
sincere appreciation. 

Uy inquiry with regard to classifi- 
cation (fsjnily and genera order) for filing purposes had to 
do rather with the arrangement of ray collection catalogue 
cards than with a system of excerpt files, in which, as you 
say, the drawer label would be sufficiently indicative of 
contents. Your reply satisfies my doubt entirely, i had 
simply not felt like going ahead with alphabetical rather 
than relationship f iling ,lest I be minimizing the relation- 
ship end of the proposition. }fy own feeling was that a 
file catalogue was not essentially the place to learn re- 
lationships anyway, but was, instead, for quick and ready 
reference, so I am glad to note that you do not feel the 
need of ray changing that idea. 

The plan for the Southwest Museum 
was intentionally given in the vague, rather than in detail 
since it has not even yet advanced beyond the tentative ' 
point. The main thing, as I see it, is to get some sort of 
collective and coord inateJL work started here in Southern 
California, and to that end I stand ready, as I said, to 
*pool my reference bibliography, books, collections, 'and 
things of that kind, in return for office and floor 'space 
in a fire-proof building, instead of the frame house where 
they now stand. But, beyond that, I feel ouite as you do - 
that any pooling" of manuscript would be utterly ridiculoua 
and impractical. Your warning resulted from a misunderstand- 
ing i^my vague statements in the matter. The most that 
could be done in anything of that kind would be to have 
possibly, locality and specie, reference, on deposit, rlfer-

ring to the personal notes of different men, in order to 
assist anyone working on locality or specific group to 
locate unpublished material - - the use of same to remain, 
of course, p\irely a matter for the origill*.! worker to de- 
cide. But, even that scheme would involve far too much 
labor, I inagine, for the returns. Things of that sort 
would be better worked out, it seems to me, if each Man 
maintained his own system for the location of locality or 
specific references in his own journal*^ Then, if somebody 
else was working on a group or locality on which he had 
material of value, he would be able to give or withhold it 
as he saw fit - - - which is, of course, entirely fitting.

1^' dear Dr» llerriaa:- 

The postaark of the card of Christmas greetings 
was Washington, and I gjqi therefore forced to the realization that your 
route this year took you directly East and that our hope of welcoming 
you to the new hone at the above pernanent address is postponed for 
six months or a year. 

After a glorious two months field trip up in 
ny old stanping grounds in New Brunswick this sunner, made successful 
from the motion picture standpoint by the drought and glorious sun 
and abundance of game (I saw as high as 50 head of big game a day many 
days of July), we turned .Test, and after a long and trjdng search, were 
successful in finding a just-completed hoce exactly suited to our needs. 
It is in the semi-Spanish style, with six comfortable rooms for living 
quarters, and a glorious studio wing for m^^ work. I an sorry you could 
not have seen the latter, for I know you would have rejoiced with me in 
the new conditions vrhich I will have for my work. 

What are you up to these days? Still deep in 
Indian lore and records? And was the past sumner a success in giving 
you the final data you desired with reference to the old village sites, 
etc.? Personally, I still tr^'- to combine the semi-popular motion picture 
work, because of financial necessity, and at the same time to work in all 
that I can of serious vertebrate stu4' • Speaking of the latter, the 
Laurence liuey who was vj^ith me on the sheep trip v/hich I made for Nelson 
and who has done much of mj^ field work in Mammals, took a cat this year 
in t}ie VJhite Mountains, over the lino in Mono Co., California. The 
whole problem of the cats here in California (l refer, of course, to Lynx) 
needs further work, to m^^ mind, and I hope to tackle the problem v/ithin 
the State as soon as I have m;^'' collections installed here. Meantime, 
hovTever, I should like a check upon this specimen, since it is my impression 
that it will prove to be an outpost specimen and station for baileyi from 
farther East. Is there anyone about Washington today whose opinion on the 



Dr. MerrioRi - 12/23/21.

Btatter you would consider final and conclusive? If there is, I want to ship 
the beast on to V/asldngton for diagnosis, in order that it nay be included, 
in case it proves to be bai ley i , in Grinnell*s new oonteaplated list of the 
liaaBnals of California. Have you done mtioh with the cats yourself, and am I 
right in fearing that when I get into the problen here in California, I will 
find I^mx characters superficial, obscure, and difficult to work with^ or am 
I wrong m isy belief that the cranial characters of the group are rather un- 
satisfactor^,^? I an sorr^^ to bother you for information in the Esatter, but I 
am personally too suspicious of the knov;'ledge we liave of the group here on 
the Coast to feel like taking up the natter of this individaal without check- 
ing first with y^u. 

You will knoiY the whole story when I tell you of th« 
chore it has been to move nr^ library, files, and collections, which now 
number upwards of 10,000 specinens. Because of the detail connected with it, 
I have been grossly negligent of Christmas cards and remembrances this year, 
and trust you and :.!rs. Lierriam and Zenaida will forgive this typed expression 
of seasonal greetings.

% dear Dr. Itorriam:- 

It was a delight to hear by your letter of 
January 4th that your sunnier, too, had been successful. I watoh the 
progress toward your goal in Indian work here in California not only 
with an interest in that work, but with the constant selfish hope that 
it nay be brought to its proper completion with dispatch, and that you 
nay then feel that your next problem is to tackle the comprehensive 
work on North America mannials that we all so need. 

I trust the cliange from the office 
quarters where I saw you last has meant simply a change to more conven- 
ient heme work, and that the waste of time in moving has therefore been 
worthwhile. The offices seemed so ideal in many ways that I hope the 
change has not been due to any one of the pesky landlords with whom 
Washingtcm seems so cluttered. Or is it long enough after the war so 
that conditions are bettering there? 

I am taking you up on your kind offer with 
reference to checking up on my White Mountains Bob-cat. I do it with 
SOMS hesitation because of the nuisance I know it will be to you. But 
it seems the only way that I can satisfy myself in regard to it. The 
skin and skull went forward this morning by Express. I included in the 
shipment another cat skin without skull, from Kirby, Montana. It may be 
impossible to do anything with the latter^ but it was utterly impossible 
for me to tabkle here on the Coast, and I thought that it might be 
possible that the Survey has material from that section, with skulls, ote. 
The shipment went forweurd in my absence, and was sent in error to your 
house, instead of to the Survey, lify apologies for the extra xmintentional 
trouble caused you thereby. 

All three of the Dickeys count on seeing the 
lierriams here in southern California on their swing back toward Lagunitas. 






Dr. Merriam - l/lO/22

I almost forgot a rumored item that will be 
of prime interest to you. I am "told" that within the last six months a 
Grizzly has been killed in California, and that the skin and skull are 
here in Los Angeles County. It may all prove to be pure gossip or mis- 
identification, but you may be sure that I am hot on its trail, and that 
you will have prcxapt word of it in case it proves that a specimen of one 
of the vanished or vanishing California species has really been taken. 

With best wishes as always for your Winter,

This is the tine of year vfhen ^nou once or tv.'ice 
passed through Pasadena on j^ur spiring back to Washington, so I am dropping 
you a line to express the hope tliat both Mrs, Dickeys and I vd.ll have the 
pleasure of vrelcoming you and Mrs. iSrriam again this year. I am keen to 
hear how your summer panned out, and -whether you feel that your California 
Indian v/ork is reaching the fruition stage. 

The new }!rs. Dickey and I had a marvelous summer 
back in ra;^'- old stamping grounds in Hew Brunswick. I took one of those 
new high ^peed cameras ivhich analyze motion at the rate of 200 pictures 
a second^ into the v.'oods with me this year, und the resultant tinalyses 
of the gaj-ts of moose and deer would interest you, I am sure. I am 
scheduled to go East in February for a few nasty publicity "lectures" 
with the film. One of the bright spots in that trip will be the hope 
of seeing the Merriams in Washington. We missed you "when I v/as there in 
September, but the Baileys did their best to make up for it by their 
generous hospitality. 

By the way, can you tell me off hand whether a 
paratype must of necessity be at the same time a topotype? I have checked 
Thomas on the subject (Proc. Zool. Sec. London, 1893) together mth 
Palmer, etc. All agree that a paratype should properly be "one of the 
original series" examined by the desoriber and entunerated in his description 
but I failed to satisfy myself as to whether these "original series" can 
permissibly contain specimens from two or more localities or •whether 
that "original series" must be topotypic. I had always ussumed the latter, 
but now find no apparent basis for irr belief. 

Trusting that you are in fine physical shape

Ify dear Dr, Merriam:- 

It was a disappointment to learn by your letter of

to feel that we shall see you in Washington. 

Mrs. Dickey has a sister "in the Army" who chances 
to be stationed in Washington for the time being. We shall there- 
fore be with them in all probability* This in no way detracts from 
the appreciation felt both by Florence and myself of the suggestion 
of Mrs. Iferriam and yourself that we "stop" with you. 

It Trvas a pleasure to get your reaction on all this 
paratype-metatype business. There is a nice distinction possible 
in these terms* Their value I felt frankly ready to question, but 
there are so many valuable niceties that I am still too ignorant 
to appreciate that I always try to get at the me^t of things of 
that sort, as they come up. We had your Science, NS. 5: pp. 731- 
732, May 7, 1897, reference on hand, but unfortunately the item 
itself was not available in southern California. Similar lack of 
the actual library items has been one of the really trying problems 
connected with building from the ground up as we have had to do 
here. It has often made us \mnecessarily troublesome to our 
friends. Slowly, however, we begin to see light ahead as our 
bibliography, and library, and collections grow.

My dear Dr. Merriam:- 

Your letter of February 26 was awaiting me on ny 
return from the eastern trip, of Vidiich Washington still remains a 
bright spot both for I»4rs. Dickey and myself. 

I also found your partially typed and personally 
checked Llount Mazama paper of which v/e spoke in Washington. May I tell 
you that that sort of time-taking" generosity is something of a marvel 
to at least this member of the * scatter-brained younger generation" I 
It often seems to me as though I run to and fro in useless effort with- 
out accomplishing the coiirtesies — — certainly without doing constructive 
scientific work. But perhaps that is just a part of youth, c<nd of work- 
ing in a section where so much of the basic routine work in the way of 
library and material accession still remains to be done. In any event, 
accept my keen appreciation of the papers. 

After I saw you, I had my good old Scotch guide with 
me in Cleveland, and his belief as to local Indians checks exactly with 
the data you send. The LUk-maks still live at Bathurst and Restigouche, 
and in his belief alv/ays Kave. In summer they formerly ranged up the 
Nipisiguit and across the "Carry" to Tobique, so my careless title 
apparently was justified after all. Another tribe, of v/hich the remnant 
still lives at Tobique Point, ranged up the Tobique in summer. They 
were apparently a vfeaker tribe, however, so the headwaters v/ere doubtless 
llik-mak summei'ing groiinds. He is to check up for me the stock of this 
second tribe, from the siurvivors. 

My next work is the Laysan trip for Dr. Nelson. 
That v/ill take till mid- June. After that, I expect to be on the job here, 
so if any rancher ias call you to southern California this summer, do let 
us know in advance and set some time aside for us. If not, we may look

Uy dear Dr. Merriam: 

Florence and I have wondered several tines since 
our happy afternoon in your home last spring in Washington whether the 
Kerriams were ever properly thanked for their large share in our hos- 
pitable welcome to the capital last year. If not, you must blame the 
case of flu which Florence picked up on the last part of our lecture 
trip, and further blame our almost immediate departure, after we reached 
Pasadena, for Honolulu, whence I jumped off with the Survey expedition 
to Laysan. 

This Laysan experience was one of the most fas- 
cinating of my field career. The rabbits had done their worst on the 
Island, effecting an ecologic change in a short ten years such as or- 
dinarily occxirs only in many thousand years. There was no green thing 
left save two palms, an iromvood bush, some tobacco plants that had 
grown wild, and Sesuvium about the central lagoon. The Miller Bird 
had already passed, and Himatione freethi became extinct under our 
'^ery eyes , bixt luckily not until I had recorded it with the motion 
picture camera. It was a romance with more than a bit of tragedy in 
it to see thds rapid ecologic change, but interesting beyond words. 
and to live in the midst of such a great colony of sea birds, so 
utterly devoid of fear, was an unique experience. 

Since our return, we have been expecting to get 
to San Francisco and therefore hoped to look in on you at Lagunitas. 
Our northern trip is now deferred until November, and we are therefore 
keenly in hope thsrt you will plan to come through Pasadena on your way 
East this fall and give us the privilege of having you v/ith us in our 
home for a couple of days at very least. The two Dickey households may 
parcel you out a bit, fol: there is the keenest rivalry as to v^here you 
are to bunk, but that will be decided before you get here, so that you 
will be saved the family row over who is to have the pleasure of having 
you. The collections here have grown to some 24,000 specimens, and in 
consequence many problems are arising that are utterly beyond the scope

of my training or original intent. I am keen to have your opinion on 
a number of things. Besides, Florence has a Pomo papoose basket 
v/hose design she insists you must decode for her, I have the promise 
of a grizzly skull from the Monterey country to show you (although I 
don't count my chickens until they are safe in the cases). By the way, 
if you are in Berkeley, don't fail to take a look at Grinnell's wolf 
skull from southern California, of which I spoke when I was in Washington 
last spring. He finally secured the skull, and it proves to be really a 
lobo, in spite of all of our doubts. I have not seen it myself. 

One thing I have long been nerving myself to ask: 
Have you not a photograph of yourself that I could have to match the 
good one of Mr. Ifuir? You know I have always associated you two and 
blamed you for having such a Tirild life interest and work as zoologist i 

With the keenest anticipation of hearing that you 
can drop in on us this fall for ^ few days, I remain

on the Island* effecting an ecologic change in a short ten years 
such as ordinarily occurs only in many thousand years* There was 
no green thing left save two palms, an ironwood bush, some tobacco 
plants that had grown wild, and Sesuvium about the central lagoon* 
The Miller Bird had already passed, and Himatione freethi became ex- 
tinct under our very eyes , but luckily not until I had recorded it 
with the motion picture camera* It was a romance with more than a 
bit of tragedy in it to see this rapid ecologic change, but interest- 
ing beyond words, and to live in the midst of such a great colony of 
sea birds, so utterly devoid of fear, was an unique experience* 

Since otir return, we have been expecting to 
get to San Francisco and therefore hoped to look in on you at Laguni- 
tas. Our northern trip is now deferred \mtil November, and we are 
therefore keenly in hope that you will plan to come througih Pasadena 
on your way East this fall and give us the privilege of having you with 
us in o\ir home for a couple of days at very least* The two Dickey 
households may parcel you out a bit, for there is the keenest rivalry 
as to where you are to bunk, but that will be decided before you get 
here, so that you will be saved the family row over who is to have the 
pleasure of having you* The collections here have grown to some 
24,000 specimens, and in consequence many problems are arising that 
are utterly beyond the scope of my training or original intent* I am 
keen to have your opinion on a number of things* Besides, Florence 
has a Pomo pappoose basket whose design she insists you must decode 
for her* I have the promise of a grizzly skull from the Monterey 
country to show you (although I don't count my chickens until they are 
safe in the cases)* By the way, if you are in Berkeley, don't fail to

should keenly appreciate a copy. 

It Yras a delight to have Mrs. Merriam, Zenaida,

My dear Dr. Merrianif- 

I fear that in the haste and excitement of the 
holiday season I failed to acknowledge your prompt kindness in re- 
questing the United States Geographic Board to send me their Reports 
of decision^. In compliance with your request, l!r. McComick promptly 
forwarded me the 5th Report, together with a Supplement, containing 
decisions up to June 1, 1923. These have been acknowledged to 
Vs. McCormick, but I wanted to express my personal appreciation for 
the trouble you took in the matter. 

I -was quite worried a few days ago to learn that 
Mr. Prank Stephens had been knocked from his bicycle by an automobile, 
and taken to the receiving hospital in San Diego, unconscious. However, 
a note and some specimens of Thomomys bottae puertae came in from him 
yesterday. He made light of the experience, and apparently got off more 
fortunately than could have been hoped. 

After a full holiday season, we are settling down 
to a last month of routine curatorial work before I leave, the first of 
February, for a hurried three weeks business trip to Dubuque, It will 
be impossible for me to come on to Washington, as I had hoped, so I 
shall be forced to look forward to catching the Merriams en route West, 
or at Lagunitas, in case we get North next summer. 



during 1924, I am 



Wishing every sort of good thing for the Merriams 

Very sincerely.

My dear Dr* Merriam: 

I mis 80 shocked to hear by your letter of 
January 15 of a "serious injury* that Mrs. Merriam had received 
and of your daughter's appendicitis operation that I am dropping 
you this hasty line of sympathetic understanding. I trust that 
long before it reaches you, you idll all be in top form again* 
We, too, have had a series of similar things. Hy Grandmother 
first wfts very ill, and one night nhile I aweited hourly "word to 
start East, a wire came that Mrs. Dickey's sister had been oper- 
ated on that night at her husband's army post, down in Georgia, 
and to cap the climax, my Mother has now turned up her toes with 
what would probably be diagnosed as pneximonic flu if she would 
permit of medical examination. Luckily, however, she is in my 
Grandmother's comfortable old home in the Kiddle Vest, and latest 
advices indicate that she is coming on nicely. I am rtmning on 
for a flying trip to the Ifiddle West February 4, but unfortimately 
will not get on to Wiashington. 

With kindest regards to Mrs. Merriam and 
Zenaida, and with the reminder that I still need a photographic

My dear Dr. Merriam: 

It TTas more than good of you to remember my request 
for one of your photographs through all these months. I found it await- 
ing me as one of the feir bright spots in a mass of letters, etcs, rrhich 
had accumulated during a recent second hurried trip to the lliddle West. 
As I told you when I had the temerity to ask for it, I always associate 
you and Mr. Muir so closely and so definitely in mind with that first ex- 
perience of mine in the Sierras, which I always feel cast the dye for me 
in directing my life interests into natural history channels, that I want- 
ed you on my wall, together. As I say, it was good of you to remember 
me. Rest assured the photograph is keenly appreciated. 

My own winter has been so broken with the two trips 
since Febr\xary first, to the lliddle West, and vdth certain outside 
activities here, that it is hard to believe that the spring has rolled 
around and that presumably you are turning soon toward good old Lagunitas. 
But, the rush of migrants through our yard proves the point beyond per- 
adventure.. If, by chance, you are to come west by way of Pasadena, do 
not fail to stop for the night with us. 

I am wondering whether the hoof and mouth disease will 
interfere with your field work this summer. There is so nuch hysteria in 
regard to it here in southern California, and so little honest scientific 
precaution that it makes field work almost impossible in the southern parts 
of the state at the moment. Van Rossem and I had counted on a precious 
week in the field, chasing red-wing colonies, since we are at work on the 
group and since my long indoor grind, - which stretchep ahead of me for ^t 
least another year - is beginning to pall. Because of the present condi- 
tions, however, we have given it up for this year. Instead, I may steal a 
week on Los Coronados, just as a vacation. 

Thanking you again for the photograph and also for the 
elk separate, which came safely to hand, and which has been added to our 
files, I remain 

Very sincerely.

My dear Dr. Merriam: 

I "Was disgusted to learn by your letter of May 8 
that you had been under the ireather for six iieeks or more, because I 
know how maddening set-backs of that sort are, when one wants to finish 
working up material. I trust that long before this reaches you, you 
are back on the job and feeling tit* for the summer's work, I shall be 
interested to hear when you reach Lagunitas, for I know how mucji you

Since the Federal authorities took over the foot 
and mouth quarantine, there seems to be a much more sane imposition of 
restrictions. By that I mean that local, infected areas are even more 
carefully quarantined, but there is less ridiculous interfefrence with 
motorists in "clean" districts, etc., so I hope you will find, by the 
time you are ready to get into the field, that the hysteria has sub-

Washington, D. C» 

My dear Dr. Merriani: 

All too many weeks have passed since the Geographic bird 
book arrived one morning in the mail, with your card enclosed. 
1 keenly appreciated your thought of us and had it in mind to 
get off a prompt reply, but you know how things of that sort go, 
and my schedule these past weeks has been particularly crowded, 
what with ranch development, my oim little organization routine, 
and the amplifying of the general program and budget for vertebrate 
zoology at the Institute. The latter is coming along slowly but 
so surely that I think you would be happy over the situation. 
I find the financing end of the game particularly trying, since 
something was left out of my nature that apparently is essential 
if one is to do that sort of thing easily, but after all it is the 
success and not the ease v;-ith which the job is put through that 
matters, and I hope within another month to have our little section 
budgeted and endowed on a broader basis, so that we can make our 
work a bit more effective IhRn ^vhen I tried to carry the burden 
largely unaided. 

I have just received from the tanner a grizzly skin with 
skull from the head of the Distna River, Takotna, Alaska. I 
would, of course, be keen to have you identify this ^ ecimen in 
comparison with the material you have in Y/ashington, but before 
sending it on to you I am writing this line to make sure that by 
so doing I was not putting an unfair burden/&Qisance on you. In 
other words, do you have enough routine identifications o: bear 
so that ycu slip down to the Museum anyv/ay, once in a while, and 
go over bear • material. If you do, I will forvmrd this specimen 
and ask you to routine it through the next time you happen to be 
doing the same thing for others, but I don't want to feel that you 
are making a special job of it, in view of the mass of other stuff 
you are carrying, and in view further of the fact that your work 
with the bears is largely set aside for the moment. 

With warm personal regards to Mrs. Merriam and the hope that 
you have all escaped the flu and are having a happy and effective 
winter, I am

Dr. C. Hart Merriem, 
1919 Sixteenth Street, 
YiTashingtcai, D.Co 

Vty dear Dr. Iferriam: 

It was 8 good to see your signature again 
that I should long since have acknowledged your letter of Deceniber 1, 
if only to wish you all well and express the Dickeys' regret that 
it has already been too long since we have seen the Merriams. 

However, the press of holiday odds and ends, 
and an unexpected long month's loaf I took with the family on a 
ranch near Palm Springs prevented my earlier reply. 

I was particularly interested in your paragraph 
with reference to the scattering Nevada work we have done. As I 
remember it, you were instrumental in a thought I once had of throw- 
ing the full force of our group effort here into a serious state- 
Ydde Nevada job. At the time, however, Grinnell was also interested 
from a piecemeal standpoint, and the Survey felt that their early 
material would lead to a thorough job, so we turned southward, except 
for the sporadic work that Burt and van Rossem of our group here 
have done in the Charleston's and other scattered ranges in southern 
Nevada, which we wanted to reconnoiter and tie in with our V,liite 
Moiintain, Arizona, and Rocky Mountain matex'ial. Burt and van Rossem 
are now in Mexican waters on an unexpected field trip for a couple 
of months, but on their return in early February, I imagine I will 
shoot van Rossem back into southern Nevada to see what the heavy 
snow pack to the north and west has brought dovm this winter. 

I am years overdue for several consecutive 
months of work in Washington, New York, and Cambridge, and I wish 
I could be sure of seeing you there before you start V<est, but 
present poverty, silly probate routine, and a physical crash that 
had promised a year or so ago to be as lively a one as m^' smash of 
•22, will probably further delay my coming East. Meantime I am 
thoroughly enjoying being back at the desk, even though on a somewhat 
limited schedule, and despite the further fact that I am rattling 
around in an empty house as a widov^er, while Mrs. Dickey and the boy 
frisk about on the desert, and throw off splendidly the last of a 
rotten sinus condition and the aftermath of poliomyelitis. 

Hy wannest personal regards to Mrs. Merriam 
and yourself, and remember me to Zenaida when you write.

22 February, 19 



Vly dear Dr. Merriam: 

Your letter of February 3rd, was awaiting me on 
my return from another vacation spree of a week or so with the family 
near Palm Springs. It is a delight to learn that you contemplate 
working again the Palm Springs Indians during the coming spring, for 
I have already waited hopefully for a number of years against the day 
of your coming back to work again with our Southern California Indians. 
As a Ford driver I am not to be sneezed at in spite of ray long legs 
and it would be a delight if I could tote you about a bit or tag along 
and talk mammals and birds between Indian stops. Don»t fail to let 
me knov^ in advance when your plans crystallize and when you expect to 
be down our way. 

The "ranch" I spoke of is not the sort of place 
that word calls pleasantly to your mind and mine, but is instead one 
of these newfangled ".vinter "dude ranches" which serves the purposes 
of Mrs. Dickey and the boy admirably, but which I would not myself 
choose as a base to work out from seriously. You will not recognize 
the simple little old Palm Springs you and I knew and loved, for the 
place has "gone Hollywood" to an astonishing degree to meet the tourist 
travel the good highways have brought to it. However, in the develop- 
ment a number of modest apartment and cottage courts have sprung up, 
and if I intended to base on Palm Springs for serious work I think I 
would find something of that sort to den up in at night, use the 
several cafes, etc., for meals when I happened to be in town and thus 
have more freedom of movement and less monkey business than in the 
somewhat social atmosphere of a dude ranch run on the .^erican plan 
with meals at set hours, etc. Because of financial conditions none of 
the places on the desert have been full this year so it should be easy 
to get almost anything you want. On the other hand, the heaviest rains 
of a decade will result in an unusual wild flower display the end of 
March, which may draw enough additional visitors to fill things up. 
Even so, however, they will for the most part be casual week-endors. 
For work with the Indians farther south in the Goachella Valley, I am 
told the hotel at Indio is now clean, well-run and inexpensive. 

I had heard of the fine grandson with the keenest 
interest, but the Talbots» transfer from Santa Fe to Berkeley had not 
registered with me if I had heard it. Hovf splendid that they are so 
close to Lagunitas.

Dr. C. Hart Merriam, 
1919 Sixteenth Street, 
V/ashington, D. C« 

Dear Dr. Merriam: 



Your brief line of March 14 convinces me that 
either your liver vj-asn't v/orking that morning, or that you were struggling 
with your income tax return. No lesser evil could have prompted you 
on that day to misconstrue my "extreme brevity" into an inference of 
disagreement. It is just another of the legion examples of the danger 
of the brief written line, and jumping to false conclusions therefrom. 

The truth of the thing is thrt the Roosevelt 
address referred to probably fell on no more receptive or appreciative 
ears than mine in the v/hole cock-eyed world. In the first place, such 
work as I have done, looking tovmrd the gathering of "tools" (library 
and material) for the future vforkers in the scientific center of 
Southern California, has been founded on one sole premise. That premise 
has been that the "observational" (as contrasted with "experimental") 
attack on natural history in the field and in the laborsttory must 
go on if human knowledge and biology as a whole are to be rounded out 
intelligently. 

I am always perfectly ready to adm.it to Morgan 
in our o^^vn group here, or to anyone else, that the percentage of return 
per unit of effort expended may be less in the future, as between 
observational work v/ith forms evolved in nature, and experimental work 
in producing new forms in the laboratory under artificial conditions 
and studying them with a microscope, etc. But at the same moment, I 
alv/ays contend that this a controversial matter — with only a 
problematical prognosis possible — and that I am therefore not interested 
in such discussions. Vifhat I am interested in, and v/hat I cling to 
tenaciously, is my premise th'a^ there is and will be a profitable return 
from a continuance of the observational and investigational m.ethod of 
attsck unon both birds and mammals, both in the field and laboratory''. 
As long as man remains man, and continues to be interested in any phase 
of the environment about him, such work on one or another aspect of its 



CALIFORNIA INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY 



to: Dr. Merriam; 



PAGE: 



date: March 22,1932 



many ramifications will continue to be thoroughly worth while, and 
yie? ' a profitable return, if intelligently done. 

From the other angle, I have alv/ays been too 
great a hero-worshiper of Roosevelt, and too thoroughly cognizant 
of his knowledge and of his attitude, to do anything except shout 
with glee at your presentation of the man and of his knowledge and 
of his attitude. 

Next time don't 'infer*' anything from the 
"brevity" of what I write except that I am probably writing in a 
crowded moment, and I will do the same by you. All that I intended 
by my note was to thank you instantly for your thought of me in 
sending me a reprint in which I was thoroughly interested. I have 
amnlified myself in this letter just to show you that that interest 
was aroused in an individual who agreed with your viewpoint as 
thoroughly, if not more thoroughly, than anyone you could la^' hands 
on in the world. 

"iVhen are you coming V/est? The family is 
moving up from Palm Springs to our ranch in the OJai about April 7, 
but I will be in or near Pasadena all of Anril.

In response to nunerous inquiries 
the Geologioal Survey has undertaken to prepare geologic 
railway guide books in the fom of Survey bulletins for 
free distribution of the three oldest transcontinental 
railways, the Northern Pacific, the Union Pacific, and 
the Santa Fe. The Shasta Route from Seattle to Sac- 
ramento and the Coast Route from Los Angeles to San 
Francisco have been assigned to ne. 

The guide books will include a geologic 
map of the Railroad belt but will be limited generally 
to what may be seen from the train. I «„ now gather- 
ing data for the framework of the volume I an to prepare 
before going into the field to travel over the route. 

You are familiar with both the Coast 
Route and the Shasta Route, especially about Lit. Shasta. 
I have your Biological Survey of Mt. Shasta for study and 
reference. I shall thank you very much to call my at- 
tention to matters of greatest interest and importance to 
the intelligent traveler. The zonal arrangement of the 



2. Hart Ilerriam --2 



fauna and flora comes in that class I suppose. Lumbaring 
has been the great industry of that region in recent years* 
What a strong contrast between the floras and faunas of Ht. 
Shasta and Shasta Valley. 

Tell me any important facts about the Indians, 
their arts, history, wars, etc. Much attention cannot be 
given to such subjects but I wish to mention them and to re- 
fer to such works as yours for detail and more ample infor- 
mation. 

Please find inclosed slips of paper on which 
to send information so that each subject may be filed in its 
appropriate place. Please sign the communications, for I 
desire to give full credit for all information used. The 
favor of an early reply will bo greatly appreciated. 

Very sincerely yours,

Dear Sir 



Tour letter relative to brown bear la at hand and 



I will gladly tell you what little we were able to find out about 
thei during our stay near Deiarcitlon Polntiin 1913-1914. 

I presuie that the spec lien that MUter si^t in was the one that 
John Heard secured at a point opposite the west end of Barter Id. 
about the 20th of Aug.1913. We were laying a line to a large ice floe 
about two tiles offshore|as the ice was so thick off Barter Id. that we 
could lake no headway; when one of the boys went to the crows nest with 
the glasses to see if he could sight any gaie.He spied thisjbear on the 
beach lear an old iglocjbut on account of its light looking colorjtook 
it to be a polar bearjand reported it as such. The bear was hunting for 
ground squirrels and was shot only a few rods fron the beach. The 
leat of this bear seeied to le to be the best of all the leat that we 
had during our entire trip. I kept the aeasureients in ly note book 
which has now gone to Thayer. 

This bear^was the lightest colored of tii the skins that I saw 
altho two other light colored skins were seen. The natives use these 
bear skins extensively for doors to their tents and Igloos so I had 
a chante to exaiine between 15 and 20 8kinfi|B0st of which were probab- 
ly killed between^erschel and Flaxian Ids. and probably within 50 miles 
of the coast. 

An old bear with two yearling cubs was shot during Oct. 1913 

at a poinA about 25 liles west of Demarcation Point. These bears were 

killed soit 15 or20 miles inland by,natlves but I was never able to 
secure the skulls as the natives and dogs made short work of them. 



I h&d t black bear skin with le that I used to sleep on and 1 
found that only thoie nativei that had been over the mountains or 
up the Mackenzie recognized It and they said that;f*'He no stop this 
side lountain'^and I never saw a native with a black bear skin so 
I think, that it is safe to say that they would be hard to find on the 
tundra between Herschel Id. and Pt. Barrow. J donot know of any Brown 
bears having been taken during recent years between Flaxian Id.and 
pt.Barrow altho I know of nothing to prevent thei wandering as far 
west as Pt. Barrow. 

The natives seeied to only recognise one kind of brown bear as 
occuring along the arctic coast and I did not hear of any large fori 
back froi the coast, froi talking with Dr. R.M.Anderson and others, I 
thought that the bear west of the Mackenzie were the saie or sinilar 
to the barren ground bear found east of the Macken ie and around 
Langdon Pay. 

Soie of the skins that I saw at Deiarcation Point were a very 

rich dark brown so I ai sure that the light color is not a character 
that would hold good thru a series taken there. 

I fear that the work on the ranch here will not pernit our going 
to San Francisco before fall so I fear that I will be likely to Hiss 



the pleasure of a talk with you 



Sincerely yours

Mar Mr. Merrlam: 

Thants for the chock. I think all the detail* y«u 
mention can te chEiiged, aiid I will attend to them as soon 
as possible. I am sorry that preliminary sketches were out 
of the queeton at the time I made these drawings,-**- I had 
no chance even to think of them until it came time to do 



them. 

I first made Kibbalakwe with wings, but finally left 
them off for the sake of the ensemble. The thing thSLt looks 
to you like a Sioux war-bonnet was intended for a bunch of 
hawk and eagle feathers tied behind the mask, something 
like what I had seen in photos of Pomo, Ukiah and Hupa head- 
gear. How would it be to make Klimtooe without any himian 
face at all, hie rabbit skin robe more cloud-like, and his 
feet melting away into darkness? But this would scacely 
leave him any human parts, and leave the reader entirely 
guessing. I don't know what kind of a bird he was, but 
imagined hlra something like an eagle. I would be glad to 
have your ideas on these points bafore making final changes.

Dear Doctor Merriaa;- 



I was Indeed sorry to ha?e ajiesed 






you in Washington. J did not telephone yoa in advance, as oay tiaa 
was QBuch taken up, and quite uncertain, and I could not be sare when 
I could get the chance to run up to see you. 

At to "oit#aito" and its meaning, I can only say that 
there aeeius to be a lifferance in our material. I have the foria 
in my word lists both froi Xlaaath River and Siletz.I have no rea- 
son to regard it as wrong, since I have other words for "up streaai"'^ 
These are consistently used in my texts. I have not the tine to 
look through the texts for the use of "okwaxto". 

As for phonetics, the vowels used are the ordinary con- 
tinental sounds of the several letters, the uaolauted letters have 
approximately the sounds of the saie tn Seraan. The a and ia are 
exactly as in English, ^ stands for the sound of aJi in "shut". 

In the matter of the Census publications, I fancy they 
should be referred to as"0. 3. Census. " F^or the Circular issued in 
April 1913 "Special Instructions etc". I have no responsibility, as 
I had nothing to do with the material until it was collected. For 
the spellings in the other two publications I arc responsible, and 



' ^K.w ^m wm^ a

I shall looij forward with much Interest to your forthcoming

tear Eoctor Merriani: 



I hope you Eoay be able to get more 



information on the New Piver Shasta. I can only say that the 
naterial I obtained was frcin "Euck Kid's ffiother" and that she 
and all others frooD whom I secured inforcDation at that time, were 
consistent in stating positively the facts as I gave them. 

Kany thanks for your paper on the Pit Piver Indians. 
I have read it with much interest, and feel that you have given 
us a good deal of valuable data. I do not understand, however, 
your belief that your linguistic material from both Achomawi and 
Atsufiewi is so "much more extensive" than mine. My vocabularies 
are very full, and I have several hundred pages of texts - I very 
much doubt whether your material is more than a fraction of that 
in my posession. Ky material has never been published, since I 
have no way of securing publication. 

I note also that in your reference to the, to you? disquiet- 
ing,special and abnormal" phonetic spellings in use among all those 



doing scientific work with language, you have made at least three 
errors. Since you do not propose to use any accurate phonetic ren- 
derings it is not a matter of any iiiOffient,but you might at least 
have stated your "case" against all linguistic students correctly I 
Ihere is no use in arguing over the use of hyphens, but I 



m 



ight simply call your attention to the fact that the major danger 



of their use is that without a knowledge of the structure of the 
language, one is liable to subdivide words wholly wrongly. 

I congratualte you on the excellence of the photographs. 
1 hope we may see other publications of yours on the neighboring 



tribes published shortly

tear Doctor Merriam: 



In the matter of size of vocabulary 



there is no doubt at all but that your lists nDust be far fuller 
in regard to animal and plant names;! fancy, however, that for other 
than nominal forms my lists are considerably larger. 

In the matter of phonetic recording I think you have 
made a number of mistakes in hearing the sounds, since you generally 
write "ch" for what I and others who have worked with these tribes 
always hear distinctly as "ts^.This mistake is a not infrequent 
one.Ihere are a number of other cases of a similar sort, where 
unless I am greatly mistaken, you have confused two quite different 
consonant sounds, and sometimes omifcited sounds which are signifi- 



cant. 



The whole matter of an exact phonetic method of spelling 



is obviously too complex to discuss by letter. Of course there has 
been lack of uniformity, although this is now pretty generally out- 
grown. Under any circumstances, however, the sounds were accurately 
rendered, a thing which the Inglish alphabet cannot possibly do. 
The three errors I spoke of in your fourth paragraph on p. 2 are 
"tc for ch (spelling church, tchurtch) If you had thought a moment 



you would see that your example is a contradiction. If to 



en 



then ch would not be used I Church would be spelled of course 



tcurtc. 

8 tor sh;- So far as I remember no one ever so used s. What 
you are thinking of, probably is s , an obviously different matter. 

ts for s;- this also I do not remember ever to have seen.Ihe 
two sounds are totally different 

One ffii(2ht note also, that you can't "aspirate" an aspirate I 




oy^ 



\ 



(\f^jj^ 



put the two together as a "family" must rest on comparative studies 
of both with Shasta etc. I note that on p. 6 of your paper you 
say that you omit from your comparative lists purely dialectic 



\^ V'^L!^^ forms within each of the main groups, yet in the lists you give 




*> 






a very considerable number of cases show merely dialectical dif- 
ferences between Achomawi and Atsugewi. Your treatment therefore 
is quite illogical it seems to me. 

y 

Fray don't think me hpercritical. I*m only trying to point 

K 

out that this whole matter of linguistic relationship is not as 
simple as you appear to think, and that it must rest on much more 
than any comparison of vocabularies, however large these may be. 
Your aiundant and carefully checked materials are most 
valuable and all students of the Californian area must always be 
gratefulif to you for them. As I said before, I trust that your other 



papers mill be coDDing out soon* You have bad the advantage which 
others of us have not had, or have not had in anything like such 
full measure - that of revisiting an area repeatedly so that you 
could check up on data. My Achofflawi and Atsugcwi material, for ex- 



am 



pie, has been lying for nearly twenty years, awaiting the chance 



which has never offered, to clear up a lot of doubtful points in 



the texts 



Best wishes for your continued work in this whole field 

Sincerely yours

tear Er Merriani: 



As regards the use of "s" for the 



sound of English "sh",I hadn't happened to note its use by 

9 

Gilffiore. Of course the use of wholly unusual and quite un- 
accepted signs by a single writer, who is not a linguist, does 
not in any sense constitute "usage". It would be comparable to 
an untrained naturalist using a new and unaccepted name for an 

ordinary animal. 

I think you ouite misunderstand me in the matter of 
the "tc" and "ts" sounds. They are, of course, closely allied, and 
are not infrequently interchangeable. I know that you have gathered 
a tremendous mass of lexical material in California and Nevada, and 
never for a moment should dream of suggesting either "carelessness" 
or "inexperience" as the reason why there seems to be a rather con- 
sistent difference between sounds as recorded by you and by other 
students. Since two or three indenendent other investigators had 



mo 



re commonly recorded the sound as "ts" rather than "tc",I could 



hardly help wondering if the difference was not due (as such cases 
usually are) to your"ear". W.y own "ear" is none too good, and had 



my 



hearing not been fortified by some corroboration I should not 



have ventured to doubt your version. The diiference is, after 
all, not a matter of very great conssquence, 

I am quite horrified that I should have written you 
that I thought you %ere claiming to be the first to recognize 
the distinction between Achonjawi and Atsugewi. No such idea was 
consciously in my mind, and in view of the wholly explicit state- 
ment on p. 4 I can't ioiagine how it happened. Its auite apallin^. 

Uy misunderstanding again apparently in regard to tha 
■dialectic differ5(nces etc" on p. 6. Your statement is perfectly 
clear, and I certainly must have been very sleepy to have sc mis- 
construed things. 

There is always the danger of doing anthropological 
and especially linguistic work, mainly with one or two informants 
In the linguistic case the very obvious reason is that there are 
very f^w good linguistic informant!, so that the investigator is 
often limited very sharply. As vocabularies are the least im- 



po 



rtant material to be gathered, one has to depend mainly on the 



u 



sually very few persons who can and will give text materials 



and grammatical data. Every investigator tries to check up a por- 
tion of the lexical material from a number of other informants, 
and usually does find similar individual differences to what one 
finds in English. Such variations are discussed when treating of 



the phonetics. 

I envy you your opportunities to carry on your work 
season after season. As I have had no chance to complete work 



€*• 



begun thirty years ago, and have had no opportunity to get into 
the field for about twenty years, icy material consists in the main 
of unfinished beginnings. Power to your elbow I 



With best wishes

Ky dear Coetor Merrlan: 

I think you don*t quite ander- 

etand me in regard to'correctlng errors in transliteration* froa 
»■ accepted phonetic into a soaeshat original aethod of represent- 
ing the sounds which you use yourself. I cannot see that yoar practice 
corresponds lith any of the acre usual schemes used in things like 
Webster's Dictionary etc. Since, therefor, your method is in some meas- 
ure mt least,one individual aith you, I do not feel conpetent to at- 
tempt to folloa it. Doubtless, if I aere to spend a little time in 
studying your transliterations,! could get the hang of them, but I 
haven't the time to do this, when the result is something which will 
be of no scientific value. No student of Shastan languages is ever 
going to use a scheme like yoursjbe will be puaaled and aggravated 
to have to dig out what on earth you mean. Linguistic material ia 
of no interest or value for any one not a trained linguist, and I can 
see no reason why data,intrin8ically of value, should not be presented 
to a scientific audience in scientific form. In biology you demand 
an adherence to accepted scientific usage, we do the same in linguistics 

I am quite aware that many years of use of your own personal 
6y8tem,ha6 made it seem perfectly reasonable. Your vocabulariea are 
of great value to t rain ed.lin|ttl8tio_ students; they are of no value or 
interest to popular readers; hence it seems to me they ought to be 



2. 



preeented in a form useful to the one group for irhom they have .eanlBg 
and lvalue; hence my dielncllnatlon to take the tl.e to aid In putting 
■aterial already in accepted form, into a fora in which it will be of 
no use. r» afraid we look at the matter from such opposite points of 
view that about all we can do is to agree to differ ! No one appreciates 
more than I the great care you have taken in collecting your material, 
and no one mere appreciates its value.but I simply cannot sympathi.e 
with you m the form in which you have chosen to publish it.I'm sorry.

My dear Doctor Merrlam:* 

I have a note touching "The influence of climate on 
the development of a species, and especially the influence of temperature,'^ 
hut I cannot get the exact reference to the paper in which you formulated 
your conclusions. 

I should greatly appreciate it if, without too much trouble, you 
could give me the reference to the proper publication. 



Yours sincerely.

My dear Doctor Merriam:- 

Yoxk are certainly very kind in furnishing roe 
the reprints and maps touching the geographical distribution as you 
have worked it out. 

Just at the moment I am confined to the house by a cold and so have 
not seen the recent maps which you have sent, but which have been 
reported as received. 

You mention in a postscript your paper number 3, 1890 and number 16, 
1899. I do not happen to have these and should be very glad indeed to 
complete my series of your contributions by the addition of these papers 
Thanking you again for your continued courtesy, I remain 



Yours sincerely.

My dear Dr. Merriam: 




April 26th, 1928. 



I find I oould come to Washington any time during 
the next ten days. By taking an early train J think I could 
reach the National Museum ahout 10:30 and thus have an opportunity 
to look over a series of the bear skulls of the same species but 
of different ages in order to get an impression concerning the in- 
crease in the size of teeth. If you will let me know what day will 
be convenient to you and give me a precise day I shall endeavor to 
be on hand. 

Thanking you for your courtesy in this matter, I remain 



Yours sincerely,

Dr. C. Hart Merriam 
1919 Sixteenth Street 
Washington, D. C. 



Bear Dr. Merriam: 



At the outset I wish to thank you for your courtesy 
in carine for me during my recent visit to Washington and to 
express my appreciation of the trouble which you took to get 
the material for study. 

I am inclosing a series of sheets which you can 
keep and which give the record of my measurements. As you 
see on sheets 2-7 the measurements for each tooth, right 
and left are given in ea«h series. They run fairly close. 
All the widths are put in one column and all the lengths in 
another. The values in each column are summed for the maxillae 
and for the mandibles, first, separately and then combined. 
Thus we get the stmi of all of the widths and of all of the 
lengths for each skull. 

in the final comparison, sheet 8, these sums are used 
when the totals for the young pairs are compared with those 
for the old pairs in each series. This final comparison in- 
dicates that in both '>width and length the teeth in the older 
skiais give slightly smaller diameters than those in the young. 

In the method of measurement which was used "wear" 
in the older teeth does not modify the result. vThy the older 



teeth are smaller is not at the raomen 



t clear but the defi- 



ciency though slight, appears in 8 out of the 12 comparisons 
for width and in 10 out of the 12 comparisons for length, so 
that on the whole two-thirds of all of the comparisons show 
the older teeth with the smaller measurements.

Dr. C. Hart Merriajn:- 



These records are merely notes which I shall file 
away with the idea of sometime finding out why the older 
teeth are smaller. At the moment I do not see an explanation. 

Just one point more. On going over my records 
I find that they are incomplete in three instances, in 
Ursus Americanus, 48242, I failed to take the A - B measureraentC^Ti) 
in Ursus Middendorffi, 119800, I also failed to take the A - B 
^5S^) measurement. In Ursus Middenjorffi (the very largest skull) 
I did not take the numhbr.'^^^^f it is not asking too much 
perhaps Dr. Jackson could get me these data and so make my 
records quite complete. The data, however, are merely details 
and not of intrinsic importance. 

Hoping that you will have a successful journey to 
the west and a pleasant summer, I remain 



Yours sincerely.

Sxarained for size of teeth In yotoig and old specimens. 
May 3rel, 1928. 

Used first and second molars in both sides of each Jaw, 
Measured to 0.1 millimeters with dial compasses* All 
measurements in millimeters. Took A • B, l.e#. alveolar point 
to basion. Measured widest point on each tooth and greatest 
length. See sketch.

U 





3icamined Americanus, Gyas and .Mlddendorffi • used two 
young skulls and two old skulls in each series. Data on ac- 
companying sheets. In width the values for the old skulls are 
96.5^ of those for the young and in length also about 96,6^ of 
those for the young. 

There is then no evidence of growth in these teeth after 
eruption but some evidence that the older teeth diminish in both 
width and length and to about the same degree. Whether this 
occurs ante-mortem or post-mortem is an open question.

Dear Dr. Merriam: 

Your letter of J\ily 10, enclosing statement of the Ban- 
fie Id-Hull inger Co., has come to hand, and I will attach these 
itemized bills to your account when it is returned with your 
signature. 

• 

You need not apologize for the small irregularities in your 
accounts. If this office had as little trouble with other ac- 
counts as with yours, we could probably dispense with my servi- 
ces; so you see, you are keeping me in my position! 

I was very much interested in your description of the dcuagerous 
mountain trail over which you have Just passed, and am wondering 
what could have been done had you met another vehicle. 



With best regards.

Referring to your letter of January 20, I have taken 
up the matter of the reproduction of maps of California In- 
dian tribes with the Geological Survey, fimd have made ar- 
rangement by whi ch the money from the Harriman Fund can be 
paid to the Survey. If you will kindly tell Mr. Kubel, when 
you order the work done, that arrangement has been made by me 
with Mr. J. C. ITevitt, Chief of Division of Accoujits, I an 
sure there will be no hitch in the transaction. 

I shall place Miss Miriam Holmes on the salary roll of 
the Harriman Fund beginning January 1^, as requested. 

Enclosed you will find a letter from the Library of Con- 
gress, which has just come to the Smithsonian Institution. 

Very truly yours.

Dear Dr. Merriam: 

I beg to acknowledge receipt of your check for $125,00, 
which will be credited to the Harriman Fond, on account of the 
sale of old car* 

I note what you say in regard to the purchase of former 
cars, and from your statements, the only criticism I could offer 
would be that you have paid too much personal money for your of- 
ficial work, as I do not see how you could be expected to pay 
for oars used for the rou^ going which you encounter in the 
mountains of California. 

I am enclosing a letter which came addressed to you this 
morning in care of the U. s. National Mosetim. I am also re- 
turning the letter of Mr. Durham, which is not needed for our 
files. 



With best wishes.

Dear Dr. Merriam: 



I have received notice from Miss Lilian MoClain (to 
whom you paid $90 for 18 days* salary for the month of 
October), advising that 18 days is not correct. 

Hiss McClain states that she began wozk on October 
8 and continued through the 31st. If this is the case 
(she being a monthly employee on a 30-day basis and there 
fore being paid for Sundays), there would be due her 23 
days at $5 per day, if she worked full time during this 
period. This would amount to |115. 

If you find this is a correct statement, kindly make 
a new voucher for 5 more days, equaling |25, 

Very truly yours, 

M XL>ib-<t-r»

Dear Dr. Merriam: 



I should be very much interested to 
talk with you so^ne time about a collection of 
the Indian stories for children. If it were 
done well,Y/ith tliis particular public in view, 
it might be a great big thing. I confess that 
I don't quite see the advantage of publishing 
the actrml myths first, for you can't copyright 
the idea, but only the method of telling it. 
However, this is a question which, of course, 
your own personal preference would have to 



decide •

I am sending you a circular of the

My dear Dr. 



!v!erriaja: 



■"e ^lave been quite m unconscionable 
time m reading "Myateriee of the Fore World" — 
juBt because it is such bully stuff and so well 
worked out that we have been trying to find out 
how we could secure an adequate narket for it. 
The truth is, however, that in spite of the fas- 
cinating nature of sorae of these legends, and in 
spite of the admirable manner in which they hare 
been worked out, to havo not been able to con- 
vuico ourselves that wo could sell enough copies 
to make it worth your whila or ours as a popu- 
lar book. I have become convinced in reading it 
that there v/ould be a great chance for a book 
for children, which would take a lot of those 
stories and a lot of myths of other tribes, and 
make them into what might almost bo called an 
American counterpart of Grinni's Fairy Tales,

Dear Dr. Merriam: 

Many thanks for ^rour kind letter of July 
30, speaking of my pamphlet on "Dating Pueblo Bonito." 

There is no one that I would rather get a 
letter from on such a subject than yourself. When 
I first went to Flagstaff in 13911, I stayed with 
D.M. Riordian for a month. It was not so very long 
after you had been there, and he told me many of the 
things you had observed in that vicinity. There is 
(especially one fact I seem to have associated with 
^lyou, which I think was told me at that time, namely 
j|the different altitudes of life zones of the east 
'and west sides of the San Francisco mountains. That 
became an important point in understanding tree growth 
in different parts of the forest. 

I am now writing up the climatic features 
of tree rings and especialltj the cycles which they 
display in successive years of growth. 

With very best regards, 

Sincerely yours.

Dear Sirf- 

I am sending you some skins and skulls of pocket gophers fr4m Illinois 

which are quite different ^'rom G eomys bursar ius of other states, and, to ray 

knowledge, have not received mention. I have taken a great many specimens 

at Havana, Springfield. Li^Jcoln and Clinton in this state, and all are of this 

same type. I should toe glad to have your opinion as to iwhether these forms 

are specif icall> different from Geomys toursari ^a, or represent me-ely a 

local race. 

If the animals are of Interest to you, I should toe glad to send whole 
specimens in any numtoers desired, as I am examining a great many gophers 
for cestode parasites, and have no use for them afterwar-s. 

I am also ftohding two skulls of QeongsJ)ursarius, taken at Emerson, 
Manitotoa, far nofcth of the supposed northern limit 4f this 8l)ecies,and 
genus. There is a "colony- of at least fifty along the railway which parallelj 
the international tooundaty line, lust east of the town. I caupht a half dozen 
or more of them, tout a carnivore got into my toollection, and destroyed all 
except the two. I fchot these might toe of interest "aa glvlng-.ome evidenc. 
as to the identity of the animal descritoed toy Shaw as Geomys toursariua.

Dr. C. Hart Merriara 
Washington D. C, 
Dear Sir**:- 

I am very glad to hear that the specimens of geomys bursarius sent 
are of interest. I shall send entire specimens as soon as I make another 
trip to the*r region, which will probably be two weeks from tomorrow. Since 
you suggest stuffing with cotto^ and eamphor I suppose inmerslon in cot- 
ton and campjior for a few days before sending would be ob iectionable. 
I will send them as directed, and I hope th4y will reach the Department 
in good condition. If any special method of preservation is desired how- 
ever I have no doubt but that I could get the desired reagents in the 

laboratory here. 

As to the presence of the plumbeous pekige I will say that I have 
taken within the last year adult gophers in Illinois, at Havana, 
Lincoln, Clinton and Springfield, in epF*Mg, summer, autumn and winter; 
of those less than a year old I kept no record, but the number is at least 
twenty. Without exception they were of the plumbeous pelage. I kept close 
watch on this point too, since I have taken the typical bursarius in 
f6ur other states, and those from Illinois were so different that I kppt my 



eyes open for exceptions

My dear Dr. Merrlam: 



Many thanks for your kindness in sending 
me a oopy of your reply to Tletoher* s criticism. I think 
you have shown conclusively that Mr. Fletcher was decidely in 
error in his criticism, and all students should be very grate*- 
f\xl to you for your prompt reply. 

I expect to leave on Sunday for Washington where I will 
do some work in the various Departments, especially in the 
Indian Department. I hope very much to have the opportunity 
of meeting you, for it would be such a pleasure to me. I will 
take the liberty of telephoning sometime during my stay, which 
will probably be for two weeks. 

Sincerely, 

Librarian.

iLy dear Ur. Uerrlam: 

I oannot express my dlaappointoient 
and ohagrin. The first week I was In Washington I was 
kept so very busy that I really did not have time to 
think. One of our Vioe-presidents and his wife had gone 
to Washington with me, and while it was very pleasant and 
delightful, it was necessary to submit to many arrange- 
ments of theirs. I was able to make only one effort to 
telephone your home, and was told by the operator that 
"they do not answer". Then I went to New York for five 
days and when I got back to Washington one of my first 
thoughts was to call you up again. Unfortunately during 
a conversation with some friends your name was mentioned, 
and I immediately asked where your office was, and was 
told that you had gone to your California home* Ordinari- 
ly I wo\ild not have paid any attention to such a statement, 
but somehow or other I accepted it, and I am now so sorry. 
It would have been such a great pleasure and honor for me 
to have seen and talked with you. 

I was, of course, very busy during the day searching 
through the files of the Indian and State Departments for 
letters of William Clark and Frederick Bates, our Territorial 
Secretary of State. While I found very few of the latter, 
I was most successful with the former. I made an effort to 
examine the records of the War Department, but found it was 
necessary to unwind considerable red tape. As my time was 

somewhat limited and the prospect of finding anything of 
vital interest was meager, I decided that it was not worth 
while. My only regret is that had I remained another day 
your letter would have reached me and I wo\ild have been 
greatly rewarded by seeing you. I hope I will have better 
luck the next time I am in Washington. 

With all good wishes for a pleasant stxmmer, I am. 

Sincerely,

Waterbury,Conn, jan.12,1906. 



My dear llkr.^.ferriam: 



Thank you so -luch for the copy of your valu- 



able paper which I was especially interested in and very glad to 
get. I was about to write to you to ask if you would be so kind 
as to identify for rae the *• animal like a gopher that lives in the 
water" thus described by the Luisenos;and "The red gopher " men- 
tioned in a Diegueno myth as living at the bottom of a pond and 
gnawing the roots of the cane. Also can you tell me the name of 
the bird called by my interpreter "eagle-hawk" or "kingbird" 



y 



chehamal in Luiseno,Pa-qua«ch in Dieguefio,very prominent in the 

myths; and noticeable to any one as he sits in the tops of tall 

trees sunning himself in the earliest rays of the surmer sun. 

It is a large noble, looking bird, evidently some kind of hawk^ 

larger than any bird I know in the F/^st. 

»i 
Did you see my article some time ago in t/:e Papoose on Manzanita 

'/ 
basketry, a revival^ Mr.Luiwnis wished to take off my hands m^^ work 

of selling the campo -Manzanita baskets for benefit of the Indinns; 
so I gave it up to him; and ever since he has been publishing in 
his magazine the account of his rescuing the work from false meth- 
ods, designs and shapes, etc. whereas I do not think he has received 
such beautiful baskets as parsed through my hands in the four years 
previous. I could only afford to buy a very few of them.It breaks 
my heart now to think I did not bankrupt myself and secure all 
the important ones.but I needed the money for the Indians and sold 
them as fast as I could here and there. In order not to lose them 



entirely I photographed a mimber of ttem.The desi ms were purely 



jTrimitivs as these Indians are remote from contact 




the white 



mans ideas, and had made no baskets for sale till I found them a 
market, I learned the meaning of some of the designs; and if you 
would care enotigh about it to take the trouble of returning to 
me by registered mail a book of prints of these, the only ones I 
have, I would be glad to send it to you to look at. Some of themr. 
were printed in the article in the Papoose. I have always been 
meaning to write up the T-shaped symbol which is on many of the 
baskets meaning harvest dance , associated with dancing figures 
and the same symbol as given in the Anthropologist some time ago* 
as meaning that among the Pimas.But I have so little time I have 
never done this, I sold some of tnese harvest dance baskets to the 
N.Y. Museum of Natl .Hist. 

The design meaning the marks in the earth made by the water of 
rains running down especially interested me, as it is so unique; yet 
one so often sees this in the hard adobe soil baked in to last the 

i 

svuimer through. Yet who but an Indian would think of copying it? 

Mrs.Doubleday thought that Indian women could put their basket 
designs into lace making. To me this seems manifestly impossible. 

1 do not think an Indian design could be conventionalized, and 
translated into an alien medium.That would degrade its simple 
truthfulness. I was so interested in all that you said in San 
Francisco. It seemed to me so much fuller and more authentic, the 
results of your observations, that the generalizations of some of 
the younger men. who are more in the role of beginners and yet do 



not realize tne fact; but the spirit of all was that of sincere 
seekers after the fact, and created an atmosphere very delightful 
to me who rrrust live isolated from the work of others more or less. 

This is a very hard cold winter for the Indians in the S.Calif, 
mountains. I am afraid many of my old story tellers will depart 
with tneir songs half sung and delig tful secrets buried with 
them. I hope to go out next summer but am not sure as to funds. 

Hopin^^ I do not trouble you, I am 
Very sincerely yours

Dear Sir: 



Dr. Allen, as the editor of the Auk, and the v/riter as 



treasurer of the Union, have made repeated demands upon Mr. L.S.Foster 
for a report of his sales and suhscriptions for the month of Octcter, 
1900. We have also ma.de repeated demands on him for the balance that 
he owes to the Union on previous monthly reports in 1900. 

We have failed to secure either a final accountinc or the 

balance due the Union in cash. 

I suggest that it. would be wise for 3'ou to make a formal 
demand on him for both of these items in your capacity as President 

of the Union. 

From outside sources I learn that Mr. Foster is in finan- 
cial trouble, and if we do not secure the balance due to the Union at 
an earl:' date I am afraid it will prove a total loss. 

I also suggest that if you do not secure an accounting 
and the balance due that you authorize the treasurer to place the 



ma 



tter in the hands of a law^'^er for attention 

Yery truly yours >

Will you please approve each one and return them to me at

There are a large numher of vouchers for discounts and I 
have drawn them off on a separate sheet of paper; it will only he 
necessary for you to approve the schedule. 

So far as I have been able to I have this year secured the 
endorsement of each person who has expended any money.

My dear Sir: 

I received to-day "by express the package of vouchers sent 

to you for approval. 

On examination of the same I find that there are four 
Touchers that you have failed to approve. 

I can see no reason for your stand in these cases and I 
trust that on second thought you v/ill approve the vouchers and return 
them to me . 

These vouchers are all for money expended on account of 
the Thayer Fund for "bird protection. 

The administration of this fund I take it is largely left, 
in fact almost entirely lef t^ to the judgment of the chairman of the 
committee and I certainly hope that you have confidence, not only 
in his judgment but in his integrity. 

I expended the small amount in question only after due 
deliberation with the result that I thought it would advance the 
interest of bird protection to purchase and use the books bought as 
I have. 

There is no question in my mind of the good results that 
were obtained by these expenditures. 

You must also realize that these matters are of a char- 
acter that will not permit bf delay; in very many instances action 
must be taken at once and I certainly think that you, noting the 
results obtained by our committee in the past two years, should not 
question the actions of the chairman. 

I sincerely hope that you will reconsider and return the 
bills to me endorsed.

My Dear Dr, Merriani: 

Your favor of February 17th just 
received on ray return from Washington. I note 
what you say with re^jard to tne grizzlies. I do 
not know 01 a single specimen or even a skull ot 
a grizzly from the Plains region of this part of tlie 
country. I do not have any material that will 
help you oiit with either one of the problems which you 
mention m your letter. 

In lbb4 1 secured two bears at 
the nead of the Fecos River m TJew Mexico. These were 
mounted m the old-lasnioned way, with the skulls 
in tne skin. I presume, however, that you have 
specimens from that part of tiie countiy, namely, tne 
region between Las Vegas and Santa Fe. These large 
brown or grizzly bears v/ere common in that locality in 
the vears ibbo to ibbb. 

Yours very truly,

DEATH VALLEY, CALIFORNIA 



Uaroh 12, 1931 




Dr. C. Hart Merriam, 
1919 Slztoanth St., 
Washington, D. 0. 

Dear Sir: 



Replying to your letter of March 5th re- 
questing information about Furnaoe Creek Izin. 

The enclosed circular, descriptive of the 
Inn, will tell you much about it. It is operated 
on the American plan, all rooms with bath. The 
rates for single occupancy are from |9.00 to $12. 50 
daily; for two persons occupying one room from 
|16«00 to i^22«00 per day, depending upon your choice 
of accomodations. A 10^ reduction on the room rate 
is allowed all guests remaining one week or longer. 
Our season closes on May Ist, but guests are still 
accomodated in the best manner possible until May 
7th, should they drop in on us. 

Tou will find a great many changes haye 
been wrought in Death Valley in the thirty years 
since you were last here. The Indians haye moved to 
within a few hundred yards of Greenland Ranch, one 
mile from the Inn, and are quite civilised. 

Anticipating the pleasure of meeting you, 
and trusting you will not hesitate to write if I can 
be of any help in planning your Death Valley trip, I 
am. 



Very truly yours, 



S/enc.

Dr. C. Hart Merriam, 
Smithsonian Institute, 
Washington, D. C* 

Dear Sir: 



I have been advised to write you and 
inquire regarding the possibility of securing 
a position as secretary in your department. 
My informant stated that the position would 
involve employment in Karin County during part 
of the year and in Washington during the remairder. 

My experience covers several years of 
ratner advanced work and I feel capable of assum- 
ing more than usual responsibility. I am at 
present employed by the California State Board of 
Health, on the University Campus, under Professor 
M. E. Jaffa, formerly professor of nutrition at 
this University. The department is in line for 
reorganization and as tliis may result in transfer 
of some of the positions to other localities, I 
deem it necessary to make inquiries where I believe 
I might give sat isfaction* 

For several years I have been interested 
In Nature Study, having pursued field work under 
Dr. H. C. Bryant of the Extension Department; am 
not a college graduate, but have had some class 
work in science. I might add that I have 
acted as Secretary for Miss Julia Morgan, Architect, 
and have assisted Dr. Win. F. Bade in the prepara- 
tion of his latest work "The Life and Letters of 
Jolin Muir**« 

Work of the nature in which you are 
interested has always been extremely fascinating 
to me and I feel that with this interest, I would 
be very happy engaged in it. 

Thanking you for any information or 
advice you may see fit to offer me, I am, 

Very truly yours.

referred to Mr. Beam, of this office, a letter from Mr. Robert Sterling 
Yard, advising that you are desirous of securing a photograph published 
in the Sierra Club Bulletin. Vol. 11. facing page 319. "The Grand Canon 

from Bright Angel Point". 

Not having seen the Bulletin referred to. Mr. Beam is at a loss 
to decide oust what view is desired, but thinks it is one of several 
prints Which we are sending to you under separate cover. We shall b e 
glad to have you select the one wanted and return the others at your 



convenience . 



I presume the photograph is to be used as an illustration, and 
would appreciate it if you would advise in what publication the re- 



production appears.

Dear Mr. Barnes: 

Yon may "be a. little surprised to hear from me 
hut I wish to remind you of our conversation last fall 
concerning hear skulls. You will remember me as the 
ranger who took you over the herry patches on the Columbia 



Forest. 



You told me to look out for strange bear in this 



country so I am sending you under separate cover a specimen 
which is said to be a«eak the owner of the skull has 
written the story which is inclosed in this letter. 

As this specimen does not belong to me and the 
owner did not put a price on it will you kindly let me 
know what it is worth to the collector friend of yours. 
If it is of no value to him kindly return it to me. The 
owner has the hide from this tear and I never saw a skin 



like it. Are having a very warm winter here, no snow at 









K^vr^'. 













Yeihr truly yours,

Dear Sir : 



We have your letter of January 29th and have re- 
ferred same to our Delivery Department and will do the 
best we can to make delivery as you require. 

It is impossible to place any stated order at 
this time for future delivery, as the order is dependent 
entirely upon the shipments of coal to Washington. We 
are therefore not promising or receiving any orders for 
stated periods for any deliveries as we do not know if 
we will be able to fill the same when the time arrives. 
The only thing that we can do is to distribute the coal 
we are receiving as equitably as possible. Inasmuch as 
this is not any where near up to tne requirements of our 
trade we are utterly unable to make any promises for future 
delivery. Your letter has been referred to our Delivery 
Department and we will do the beat we can for you under the 



circumstances. 



Veiy tiuly yours.

To the Residents of Lagunitas, 

Uarin County, 

California. 



Dear Friends: 

Mrs. Matilda Grief of Lagunitas has been very 
ill for many months; is in distress and sorely in need 
of our assistance. She was always ready and willing to 
help any one in sickness and trouble and her kindness 
has earned our gratitude. 

As she needs our help now, let us give it and 
be glad of an opportunity to repay her in some measure. 
I am writing in similar terms to every citizen of 
Lagunitas and ask them, to alleviate her distress, hav- 
ing no doubt that there will be a ready response. 

Please mail whatever contributions you may feel 
inclined to give, within the next 10 days, and I will 
acknowledge it by sending you a list of those to whom I 
have sent this letter and the amount subscribed by each 
of them. I ask your earnest consideration of this appeal.

This is not an effort to discour-

Dear J>r. Merriam: 




During your visit to the Coast last 
summer it was with pleasure that you mentioned 
several times your approval of the Auburn automobile. 
Our success with this car was normal, competing of 
course with the more familiar trade-majrk cars 
well known on the market at that time. 

This year Auburn has entered the highly 
competitive field with an antirely new line of cars. 
The public reception has been phenominal and at the 
present time sales covering the state are running 
next to Buick. 

We are taking this liberty in writing 
to you regarding the possibility of allowing us to 
dispose of your Dodge Sedan. Used car prices are 
holding up quite well and by carefully analizing 
our prospects it is probable that a very satisfactory 
transaction could be completed. 

Your local Auburn dealer in Washington 
would be glad to show you the various models. If 
you decided to make a change we could have the new 
car ready for yuu upon your arrival this Spring. 

'^^^fl'*^i»g to hear from you soon in this 
matter and extending our good wibhes, we remain, 



Very respectfully,

Dear Sir: 



The Royal Photographic Society of Great Britain 
are holding their fifty- ninth annual exhibition in August and 
September of this year. This is the only representative exhibi- 
tion of scientific photographic work in the world, and the lociety 
i^ extremely anxious to make it more international in character. 

I am sure that you will feel anxious that American scien- 
tific photography should be fully represented at this exhibition, 
and in order to enable this to be done with less work to the 
exhibitor, I have arranged to collect and forward American work 
intended for the Scientific section. Photographs should reach 
me not later than Friday, July 10. They should be mounted but

you will be able to send anything, when I will send you the neces-

Kr. C, Hart MerriTOi, 



Lagunitas, Calif, 
Dear Sir:- 

We have your favor of the 6th inet. and are sorry to 
learn of your unsatisfactory experience with roll film. 

The negatives enclosed show several conditions, some 
of which may have originated "before the cartridge came into your 
hands, while others were without doubt brought about ir developing* 
The latter are dark streaks extending across the center of a number 
of the exposures and are apparently the result of uneven development 
or fixing. You do not mention how the work was completed and we 
ask for furth'^r information and also that you send on any other 
negatives you may have retained. Conditions that are due to 
manufacture we may be able to overcome, obtaining very good prints, 
and we can assure you that everything possible will be done in this 
direction or we will furnish new film. We doubt, however, if we 
oan help matters to any extent where the negatives show uneven de« 
velopment and fixing, but these might also be included. To avoid 
misunderstanding, correspondence might be addressed in care of the 
writer, who will give the uiatter his personal attention. 

Regretting that you have had cause for complaint, we remain 

Yours very truly,

Dear Sir:- 



Sometlme ago we had correspondence with you In regard to 
uneatisfactory experience with roll film and asked in our letter of 
Oct. 14th that you send on additional negatives with information in 
regard to the method of development followed, etc. The dark streaks 
which were very much in evidence were due to uneven development while 
some of the other marks could have originated before the roll came 

into your hands. 

We would like to look into the matter further and trust 

it will he convenient for you to give us details, also send on any 

additional negatives you may have retained.

Dear Sir:- 



Your letter of the 5th inst. , addressed to our Mr. I'enn 
has been referred to the writer with the negatives from which en- 
largements are desired. In looking over these films wefind them to 
be of very good quality, and it will be possible to secure from each 
a very satisfactory enlargement to a length of 8i". In your let- 
ter, however, no statement is made as to ydiether or not the pictures 
are to be mounted on card, or if 3'ou wish them finished in the blade 
and white or sepia tone. The cost of unmounted prints in black and 
wMte or sepia tone will be 1,40, mounted on card 50/zf. 

We will hold the order pending receipt of your further 
advice, and would request that when replying attention be called 
to this communication that the possibility of misunderstanding may 



be avoided.

Your ''Ind In^'^itation , recel^^ed this iiornln

will not ^^ able to accept. I am ^oln^^ to tt>e ^eetln- of the \T)erlcan As 
in Denver and can afford neither the time nor the money for any other tritj 
It is a -reat onoortunity which I am missing and I fully realise it;but I 
ha^^e promised to be resent at that meeting an'^ have also Promised a paner 
vhlch is as yet untouched, so that you see It is not possible. I f*ear 
that I am R-oIn^ to miss you all in consequence and that Is still a --reate 

grief . 

Our trip vas a ^reat success In spite of much trouble vlth the horses.| 
^'e were too early for the flora of the higher slopes^but almost e'^erythi 
grew at the lover ones and f ^ot a lot of interesting^ plants. I ha^^e had 
time only for the shrubs and trees. I ha e "ritten an account o^ our 
trip for the -lerra Club -ulletin and ha'^^e made out the list of trees and 
shrubs vlth localit^Ies. -e ^ot some fine pictures and I ha^^e a -^ood one 

of the ee in?' soruce. It seems to me that the sS^uee ud the^e is not 
the Shasta Fir but Abies nobills. "e rot cones from tvo trees and both 

were the same. Did you ^et ^ood cones of the Shasta fir? If so, I -^111 
add It to the list. There ere very fev trees fruiting this ^ear and I 
think that the only two that vere at all cllmbable and had cones were the t| 
two frorr which the cones /ere o'rtained. 

It is the roughest, vl Idest , and most picturesque country that I was 
ever In and I lon;^ to f-o aq:aln. '.'e had to or^' li^'e slaves for we tried 

to make the most of our time. I was cook and dishwasher as well as bot^

My dear Dr. Merrlam;- 

You see I have waited to acknowledge those maps 
and now have three things to write about and will make one letter do tb 
the work of three, I kept one map, and gave the others away to the most 
appreciative recipients in you name. I ihank you in their behalf and 

ijfiy own. 

The next thing that I wanted to write about was you fine article 
in Science. I began to read it without noticing the name of the author 
and turned over the page still without being aware. However, I had not 
gene far when I exclaimed to myself," This is sp*endid, I wonder who w 
wrote it^' To my great pleasure I found tha-iyou were the author and then 






read it with renewed interests 



/hile I think thtt De ries has rearisoned from premises that are 

not broad enough and has been disposed to give too much importance to 

his conclusions, I know that he is right in imputing some species to swhlB 

sudden creations. I have seen .many instances of it among great groups 

A 

of annuals here in California that I had come to believe in it long before 
I had ever heard of De Vries. There are certain genera in California that 
are certainly in transition and t he species are developing continually. 
This is especially true of Orthocarpus, Eschscholtzia, ^latystemon, Pent- 
stemon, Nemophila , Phacelia, and others 

I want to thank you for the pictures which came today, v^ours is much 
better than mine but the subject is a better one. I do not like the way 

WJ dress hanfes. It makes me look like a Chinese woman with trousers on. 
Please don't show it around. t^ p^<^^, CVu>^^»-^^2t^ %k.uU^ ^ ^ j— ^

in addition. It is agreed between the sender of the message, written on the face hereof, and The Pacific 
Telephone and Telegraph Company, that said Company shall not le liable for mistakes or delays in the 
transmission or delivery, or for non-delivery of any unrepeatcd mesrage, beyond the amount received for 
sending the sarrie; nor for mistakes or delays in the transmission or delivery, or for non-delivery, of any 
repeated message, beyond fifty times the sum received lor sending the same, nor in any case for delays 
arising from unavoidable interruption in the working of its lines, nor for errors in cipher or obscure 
messages; and this Company is hereby made the agent of the sender, without liability, to forward any 
message over the lines of any other Company when necessary to reach its destination. 

No responsibility regarding messages attaches to this Company until the same are presented and 
accepted at one of its transmitiinfT: ofiices ; and, if a messa.":e is s^nt to such office by one of this Com- 
pany's messengers, he acts for that purpose as the agent of the sender. 

Messages will be delivered free within the established free delivery limits of the terminal office. For 
delivery at a greater distance a special charge w^ill be made to cover the cost of such delivery. ' " 

This Company will not be liable for damages in any case where the claim is not presented in writing 
within sixty days after the message is filed for transmission. In any event this Company is not to be 
held liable for any loss or damage, or for delay or detention, or errors caused by storms or action of the 
elements, or other act of God, or by civil or military authority, or by insurrections, riots, rebellions, or 
dangers incident to time of war, or by the unlawful acts of individuals. " 

Correctness in the transmission of messages to any point on the lines of the Company can be insured 
by contract in writing, stating agreed amount of risk, and payment of premium thereon, at the following 
rates, in addition to the usual charge for repeated messages, viz. : One per cent, for any distance not 
exceeding 1,000 miles, and two per cent, for any greater distance.
