Museum authorities here. They have 2 Cliff Dweller skulls and some cloth dug in a side canon some 27 miles from Casa Grande  by J.R.Matthews, J. Fewkes, Smith and given here by Earl [[??]]. Stephenson and a Mrs Hammond has given a colored photograph of the Cliff Palace. I shall go to the S. Kensington Museum tomorrow but do not expect to find much of an American Exhibit as it is more Natural History. I have now decided to remain with the family which will bring me home the 25th of October. If I had more time before starting I should have obtained more letters of introduction. I hope you are getting along all right and that the Snake Dance was not as horrible as the Tribune clipping relates.
Sincerely as ever
B. T. B. Hyde
