TitleLetter from J W Whitney, San Francisco, to [Henry Bowman Brady]
Date10 February 1874
DescriptionBegs him not to feel uncomfortable in addressing any American scientist, as Brady will find them almost always ready to respond. The specimens Brady needs are '"at the East"', meaning in California. Expects to return in the course of the coming months to his permanent residence in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Believes everyone ought to be grateful to Brady for taking on such a difficult subject as foraminifera.
