Dr. W. H. Langley,
Department of Zoology,
Goucher College,
Baltimore, Md.

My dear Dr. Longley,
I have just received the enclosed reply from Mr. Ravenel with Dr. Stejneger's annotations. This clears the atmosphere so that now I can make definite plans for the balance of the year. The credit is all yours for the successful outcome of my petition.
I am taking up the matter of a few dredging nets with the Bureau of Fisheries, and otherwise will be equipped as last year. Shall I borrow a seine too, or will the Laboratory possess a new one? There is one item you get for Dr. Taylor that he shared with me and that was quart size Mason fruit jars, screw caps. Could you have a few, say three or four dozen of these on hand? They are most useful for larger things, and even Dr. Grave used a few.
With my very best to you.
