Seattle, Wash., Oct. 29, 1914.

My dear Waldo:

Your letter of the 12th instant was received all right, and would have been answered sooner were it not for the fact that I am finding it a little more tedious job getting the data you wanted than I had figured upon.  I am still engaged in digging it up but thought best to let you know of the delay.  I am unable to do anything for you with respect to the fish sold at Portland and Newport.  You could probably get this data better than I could by writing to those places.  I am carrying on your table from where you left off until the present date, and so far have added about nine trips to it.  The only way to get most of this data ^[[especially the mushy fish]] is from the captains themselves, and just now they are coming in very unfrequently owing to the shortage of bait.  Will be able to send you the corrected list the early part of next week.

Showed your letter to the family and they all join in best wishes to you and your fiancee.

Will write more fully next week.

Sincerely yours,

[[Signature: John N. Cobb]]
