[Theodore P.] Lukens
Congratulating me on good article
Martinez. May 14/99
My dear Lukens,
Im just getting ready to start on a trip North to Cooks Inlet Kodiak etc with a scientific party & of course I can't accept your flattering invitation to talk to the new & vigorous Foust - Assoc. I heartily congratulate you on getting so many good men to work on so good a cause. The address to the Secretary is Capital with men able to write such a paper You can have no need of me in that Association.
I am very glad to hear from you give my regards to your wife & daughter & love to Lottie. I'll be gone 2 to 3 months.
