Spanish translation & annotations


London 1876 August 4



C. P. Patterson Esq.

Supt. U. S. Coast Survey

Washington D. C.



Dear Sir,

I sail for Boston on Aug 8 in the Cunard steamer Marathon. I shall have with me about 30 boxes containing instruments, books, and papers, the property of the Coast Survey. About an equal amount will follow in a later steamer. Will you have an order issued from the Secretary to admit all these things free of duty?

I regret very much that in consequence of returning in such haste some important though not absolutely indispensable matters remain unattended to.

My vouchers will I hope be finished before I sail; but I am delayed by having had to send to Berlin to have some signed.

Yours very truly & respectfully,

C. S. Peirce


Note 16 Aug: F-- usual letter to (…) to Sec. & Treas to admit free of duty. E. G.
