February 19, 1925.

To Dr. Stejneger:

Replying to Mr. Schmitt's memorandum of February 10, relative to his cooperating with the Carnegie Institution in connection with the work at Tortugas during the month of June, I beg to say that in compliance with your recommendation this detail is approved.  I think, however it should be impressed upon Mr. Schmitt that hereafter his entire time should be given to the Bacon Scholarship, except such as may be devoted to his work in the Museum.  He, of course, understands that all of his expenses of every character in connection with the Bacon Scholarship must be paid from that fund and not from the Museum appropriation.

Very truly yours,
[[signed W. de C. Ravenel]]
Administrative Assistant
to the Secretary.
