Brooklyn, April 15th, 1903.

Mr. Raymond Harrington, 
C/o American Museum of Natural History, 
New York City

My dear Sir:- 

I am in receipt of your letter without date, with regard to a conversation between yourself and Mr. Culin. 

Mr. Culin turned over your letter to me before he left for the Southwest. I stated to him at the time that it would not be practicable for us to undertake to do any work on Long Island during his absence. He is expecting to return some time in the autumn. 

Very respectfully yours, 
Franklin W. Hooper, 

C.B.
