Whitman, Charles Otis

Letter written in German.
Congratulations to Whitman.
Whitman reports to Conklin that Walter Sonneberg wrote him a few times to discuss evolution. Whitman hypothesizes Sonneberg is looking for evidence to invalidate evolution and Whitman says he must be "a believer in Revelation."
Whitman says he has a copy of the proceedings of each trustee meeting.
Says he won't be able to attend the meeting of the American Philosophical Society. Then talks about summer 1903 at Woods Hole.
Asks for approval on a collaboration to publish the Zoological Bulletin.
Letter written in German.
Talks about some plates.
Announcement of the Zoological Bulletin, which will accompany the Journal of Morphology. Whitman will be in charge of the editorial along with Wheeler.
Talks about correspondence with Macfarlane.
Says that Kingsley suggested to talk to Conklin to secure abstracts of the meeting in Baltimore for the Bulletin.
Whitman replies to Conklin saying that he thinks his plan of delaying the vote won't guarantee unanimity.
