prepare. You can work up a new one with Saville and he can give you a list of members of the A.A.A.S., Section H. and outsiders who might be [[strikethrough]] inte [[/strikethrough]] interested.

You will note an underscore in the letter from Dr. Howard. This concerns the address of the retiring vice-president. As this is Saville he can arrange for papers concerning his subject as Gordon, Holmes, and Bowditch will probably offer papers and they are in a position to make same cover some phase of Mexican explorations.
