Naturalist and Smithsonian administrator Spencer Fullteron Baird writes to his colleague Winfrid A. Stearns about sending supplies to Quebec at the address of George Tanguay. These include "one dredge; two dredge nets; one four-gallon tank, and about eighteen jars of alcohol." Baird anticipates that Stearns will have some trouble with the alcohol because of the duty for importing it.
