TitleCopy letter from A H White, to the Honorable J M Rusk, Secretary of Agriculture, Washington
Date6 October 1891
DescriptionWhite notes that on the previous day they received copies of the Reports of Rusk's department for 1889 and 1890, sent in answer to their application for the Report of 1889. He explains that they had already received 1890, and so the second copy would appear to have been sent as the result of a misunderstanding.

White sends thanks for their courtesy in providing the 1889 report, but as they already have the report for 1890, they return it to them via Wesley & Son, the Smithsonian Exchange Agents.
