[handwritten] Dear Professor Millikan:

I have now about $250 of the 1934-5 Rockefeller Fund unexpended. I wish to prepare apparatus for our hemoglobin program without delay, and this might make advisable the expenditure of more than this amount before July 1, 1935. Would it be possible for me to use an advance of $250, if necessary, from the 1935-36 fund?
