Albuquerque, New Mexico, October 25, 1904.

My dear Sargent :-

Your kind letter of the 19 ultimo reached us in due time and when we reached the Alvarado we found the guides that you so thoughtfully sent to us. While going over the collections with Mr. Huckel he gave me a copy of Campbells guide so I have returned yours. The other by Janvier we will keep until our return.

I suppose you are now in the sheep country and having a great time. Hope you can get near enough to the game to be able to bag a few as it could be a pity to go so far without getting results.

We have succeeded with the blanket work far beyond our fondest hopes and I can now identify all of your blankets, giving you not only the name for each but why it was so named. Have rounded up 22 types of blankets and several sub-types. Have also the names of the narrow textiles and a mass of general information concerning the textile industry. We spent a month at Hubbells and I have never had a more pleasant time in the West. He is a royal host.

We leave for old Mexico about the first of November and will no doubt reach Chicigo [[Chicago]] about the middle of December. Hope to see you when we reach town.

Thanking you for sending the guides and with kindest regards from Mrs. Pepper and self, I am, 
Cordially yours, 

Geo. H. Pepper.
