Can you tell me anything about specimens of sponges mentioned in the enclosed letter from Günther? I can not find that any specimens were returned to me. I suppose they would be mounted as microscopic specimens if they were.
I hope you and your family are very well. I have now returned here and am about to settle down to finish the last Challenger volume which I hope will || be published about Xmas.
With best remembrances to all friends at Jena.

My dear Murray
Haeckel described in the Challenger Report a very interesting family of sponges Ammoconidae with 3 genera and 5 species (pp. 23‒31). Of these types we have not received a recap. I hope you will help us to get from him a fairly representative material of the types of this family.
Have you heard about the decision of the Scotch Secretary to Fishery board. I was in || hopes the matter would besettled before the recess. I received from his secretary a very formal acknowledgment of the receipt of my letter.
Yours very truly
