Mr. George H. Pepper,
Museum of the American Indian,
Broadway and 155th Street,
New York, N.Y.

Dear [[strikethrough]] Sir [[/strikethrough]] Pepper:

   I was much pleased to receive your letter of September 20th on my return from Bella Coola. I am sending it on to the various persons who should correct your address from Newark to New York.
   I regret very much to hear that you have been sick, and trust that you have regained your old good health. I was very glad to have had a visit with you and the others last April. It had been a long time since I had seen any of you, and it gave me a new perspective of things to visit in New York, Washington, and Charleston. If possible, it made me even more contented to be up here.

Your very cordially,

[[signature of]]  Harlan J [[?]]. Smith
