My dear Dr. Pammel:
Thank you very much for your very interesting letter of recent date. It is so good of you to take so much of your time to write me so interestingly, but I am not surprised because this has always been one of your chief characteristics, and is why students love you from all over the country.
We have with us now one of your students, Mr. Romm. He has recently come to us and brings such glowing accounts of your work and all he has gotten out of it. I like his appearance so very much.
I am surprised to know that your little family is so widely scattered, however, I presume that it will be very delightful for you and Mrs. Pammel to spend a great deal of time visiting the children, and how happy they will be to have you and to keep you just as long as it is possible for you to stay. How I wish I could see them.
Your letter with reference to the changing of the sex characteristics in plants is most interesting. I am glad to get this information. I shall follow it up more closely and trust that I may be able to give you more definite information.
Regards to Mrs. Pammel, and with sincerely good wishes and highest personal regards, I am
Yours very truly
G. W. Carver.
