Mr. Walter M. Gilbert,
Administrative Secretary,
Carnegie Institution of Washington, Washington, D. C.

My dear Mr. Gilbert:

I thank you kindly for the check which you sent me.  The sum, $100, will be applied to my transportation expenses, which as I am going by rail, will be somewhat in excess of the amount allowed me.  Upon my return I shall report to you that this sum has been expended for travel and thus cancelling, I hope, the obligation, without recourse to vouchers.

I thank you for your good wishes, and with kind regards, I am

Sincerely yours,
