Mr. George H. Pepper.

My dear Pepper:-
This week has been two seances with Mr. Heye. We have discussed your letter in regard to the pottery which you picked up at Hubbles. In regard to the same, we decided it would be best for Mr. Heye to secure the pottery; we then have material to exchange, and of course it will be a very fine cost. 
You will receive probably by this same mail our combination letter written in his office. The other day he gave me $50 for the Anthropologist, and Mr. Hodge has been securing certain volumes for him at Washington. Yesterday we went up to the store to take a look at some Costa Rica material, of which With has about 150 pieces and wants about @2 apiece for, and is willing to exchange them on the note. While I might be willing to pay that amount for a few pieces, I do not know what I care to reduce the note by the amount for all the pottery, and of course in view of the excellent buy you made it seems like paying a good deal even though it would cost us several times $2 to secure it. 
After visiting the store, we lunched at the new hotel so as to get an idea of how the Grill Room had been fixed up by Witte. It is certainly different from anything in the city.
