Arlington, Va.

Dear Mrs. Blake:

as Chairman of the Council of the American Society of Plant Taxonomists I wish to extend to you the sympathy of all plant taxonomists.  Dr. Blake's death is a great loss to the profession as well as a source of personal sorrow.  Many years ago, while working in Washington, I had enjoyed the opportunity of becoming acquainted with him.  His taxonomic studies and bibliographic publications are important contributions to our literature.

Sincerely,

Mildred E. Mathias
