   Also will you and J. please send me at once a list of the Persons (non-scientific friends excluded) to whom you wish to send the paper? I can then check off those that are on the University [[cross out]],[[/crossout]] mailing list, as well as those on my own, and return it to you. The paper ought to be out in a couple of weeks.
   Mrs. Sumner was much pleased to have seen Miss Stumm and yourself. Do it again when you when you come back. 
   I am awfully sorry that I did not have a chance to see the boat before she went north. I haven't seen her since she looked like a scrap-heap. 
   Remember me cordially to Johnston; also to Porterfield and whoever of the Navy people survive and remember me*. Probably, by the time this reaches you, you will all have been sent to Mexican waters to shoot up a lot of pasteboard forts and mow down a few hundred Indians -- all for the glory of the flag!
                                  Sincerely yours,
                                      F.B. Sumner [sp?]
* Coleman, too if he is with you. Is he?
