Date No date
Scope & Content Letter previously attached to letter written by Pedro deLemos (1950.001.01) to the Pacific Grove Museum, dated March 18, 1950.
Transcription follows (strikethroughs indicated by brackets):
Dear friends,
Thank you for all the wonderful prints. They certainly show all of the fine qualities of the [work the Indians did.] Indian work. Yes, the modern designers should all find them a rich source; so, also should he find the animals and plants of the sea. But, alas!, they seldom if ever enjoy them.
We so much enjoyed your visit and look forward to seeing you again, soon. [We feel that you] We hope [that] you can tell us or refer us to [inform the much needed] information about our early penninsula Indians. There is quite a demmand for such material.
Sincereley,
W.E.H. (Merton E. Hinshaw, PGMNH Curator 1949-1957)
