Chicago, December 16, 1905
The American Association for the Advancement of Science is to meet in New Orleans, Dec. 28th. Would you like to prepare a short paper announcing what you have accomplished during the last 2 years? Or would you like me to do it? If so please indicate how much you would wish me to tell.
Of course, all mention of pending negotiations is to be kept out, but this seems to me a good time to make your achievements known among scientists.
I enclose some clippings.
