will accept the offer and give to the
tic cxpfef fence" itndlbU8lp&l'n$y.'
I beg ''lea vo lo add" forJwysclf 'an
equally urgent request that you will
accept the place. The bureau needs,
at this moment more than ever, the
care and guidance, not only of
superior scientific faculties, but of
the very best cxecutivo ability. We.,
are convinced that you oan "satisfy'
both of these urgent needs, and be
a Iworthyv'8ucces3or of even .the mqsj
distinguished among the very com-,
peteht and illustrious men who have
been at the head of its forces. Use
ful and important as the work of the
bureau has been, much and even
more useful and important work
remains to bo done. Your accept
ance of the oflieo now tendered to
you, without solicitation on your
part, will be an assurance to the
country, we hope, that while pro
secuting its great purposes jrith
Judicious economy, a scientific in
telligence of theTbroadest and IiighesT
order will surely mark the progress
of the bureau. May we not hope,
if yqit' shall hesitate about postpon
ing for a little your present work at
'Cambridge and the pursuit of the
specialty xwhich so much k interests
you, that you will, beforomakihg-a
final decision, como to Washington,
and by a persoual conference uith
the president and myself, be con
vinced how urgent and exceptional
it is at this moment, both for tho
government and the real interests of
American science, that faculties And
reputation such as you happily
possess may be at the head of the
coast survey. Very respectfully'
yours, Daniel Manning.
Museum of Comparative Zoologt, )
Cambridge, Mass., Sept. 29, 1885. )
To the.Hotiorablc'Datlicl Jlati
ninff, Secretary of the 'Treasury:
Sir I cannot feel but highly flat
tered at tho offer-of the position of
superintendent of the United States
coast survey, made 'to me on behalf
of the president, in your letter of
the 22d. In declining this offer,
tendered in such' a cordial manner, I
have given all possible weight to tho
reasons purged in fayor of my accept
ance.' It' would be a,pleasure to me
to express to the president .and
yourself my thanks in person for
the honor conferred upon me, which
I must, however, respectfully decline
for , various reasons. As I am
neither a professional mathematician
nor physicist, I do not think my
appointment would be acceptable to
my scientific colleagues as head of
the coast survey. There arc, if I
am not mistaken, two.gentleraen; at
least, in 'the service of the govern
ment, and two civilians who are
eminent specialists well fitted for
the post. Except in one case I am
unable to speak f torn any knowledge of
their executive ability. Under these
circumstances I do not feel it my
duty to take your proposition into
consideration, even were other rea
sons which kept me at Cambridge at
present such as could be ignored.
But I may add that I havo cliargo,
oi important interests on Tvmcn my
scientific future depends, and which
I could not honestly jeopardize. My
health is such also that I am com
pelled every winter toabsent myself
for at least) threekmonths'r'so that the
little time I have at' my command
for scientific work would be com
pletely sacrificed were I' to move to
Washington and begin anew in a
field which is not my own. While I
am 'forced to the decision, which
must be considered final, I cannot
refrain from expressing my gratifica
tion at the interest shown by the
administration in the appointment of
a worthy successor to tho former
superintendent of the coast survey.
That I should be named in this con
nection is a proof of confidence
which I value highly. Unquestion
ably, it is essential at this moncnt,
both to the government and the in
terests of science throughout the
country, that the head of bo im
portant a scientific bureau should bo
possessed of the highest scientific
capacity, honesty and executive
I am pxtreraely obliged for your
coraiai inviiauon to visit wasumg
ton. Were I to accept it, however,
sensible as I am of the force of the
argqments.so kjndly urged upon ntc
hy the presicnj and yourself, I
could only apply them in order to
press the claims of others, and
assist, if possible, in making an ap
pointment satisfactory to the ad
ministration. ?md to'ttieliest interest
I remain, very respectfully,
Your obedient servant,
