Herbarium of Harvard University,Botanic Garden, Cambridge, Mass Dec. 27, 1872.Dear Mr. Muir:I was thinking of you just before yours of the 15th came. Tou know I had a lot of extras of your Amer. Association paper printed. I sent a few to Mrs. Carr for you, and waited to know what I was to do with the rest. I had forgotten all about them, but on Xmas they turned up. As soon as the postage on printed matter gets modified I had best send the parcel bodily to you.Your cone has not come yet. I suppose I may get it before I dispatch this. Glad you have studied Sequoia, and I shall be eager to learn your results. Yours cordially, with best wishes for the New Year,A. GrayCone not come yet Dec. 28th.
