Prof Joseph LeConte,

Dear Sir Your letter of the 6th of last month enclosing one from Dr Andrews was duly received. The questions contained in the latter are very interesting & show that Dr Andrews has observed closely & honestly. I have just written to him explaining the t[illegible]ous forms of the str[illegible] of the [drift?] etc. I have seen broad fields of [drift?] in process of formation in Alaska & noted all the difficulties encountered by Dr Andrews. It must be very gratifying to you to have your works put in lasting shape & by so good a publishing house as the Appleton. I shall be happy to call on you
