February 10, 1903
My dear professor:-
Your letters have been received and I have been working on the data for Prof. Millspaugh. The decision relating to the cotton is extremely interesting and valuable and Mr. Hyde will be greatly pleased to hear of it. He was not in town yesterday and I have not had time to see him to-day. I expect to stop at his office to-morrow morning.
I am glad to hear that you are feeling better and I do hope that you will be careful and not overdo while you are recovering from your trouble.
Regarding the baskets at the store. I gave them the note concerning the ones that Mr. Willoughby wanted, the day after you left but Benham is away and they are preparing for a great exhibition at the Sportsman's Show on the 21st. so I had to go down and find the baskets myself. This I did yesterday and they should reach the Peabody Museum within a few days.
Will write you more to-morrow after identifying the specimens from the West. With kindest regard to Mrs. Putnam and hoping that you will take the best care of yourself, I am, 
Sincerely yours,
George Pepper
