My Dear Miss Ludlow,
I have received today yours of the 5th enclosing the P.O. order for five dollars, for which I beg to thank you very much. The extras will be ready in a day or two & then I shall get the printers. I do not at present know exactly what it will amount to, but no doubt there will be some balance towards the extension of your subscription.
One April Can. Ent. [Canadian Entomologist] as mailed yesterday (44 pages) . You will notice that I gave to your new mosquito the name of lineatopennis. This deemed to express your meaning fully & to be euphonious also. I hope you will not object to it.
Yours very faithfully,
Charles B. Bethune
