people it seems to me that you might
well conduct the negociations; besides
you are the senior partner in our piece
and possess a fluent, logical and
a persuasive [underlined] pen. I will write by
this mail write to a connection of
mine Professor Boyd Dawkins who
knows all the Scientific people in
London and who I half fancy
belongs also to the Ethnological Society
and I will tell him the position
in which we now are. I think it
very likely that he may send my letter
on and I will write it with a view
to that course. When I hear from Ellery
I will send you his letter. Mean
while I think our course is to work
the Ethnological and the Smithsonian
against each other. As to Antigone
I believe you have cracked the nut yourself.
As my classics are honest to work out
the problem by following out the clue through
the whole content I contented myself
with glancing over the [?grange?] refusal to
and a little of the content in a copy
which my classical friend here
borrowed. He considered your problem
for a couple of weeks and says you have solved it
Yours faithfully
