My dear Mrs. Gauss:

I am collecting material for a life story of Carl Friedrich Gauss, the great German mathematician. So far as I know, no adequate story of his life and achievements has ever appeared in English. Therefore I am asking your aid in helping me to locate [all] his descendants in the United States: any information you may have will be very valuable to me. Such material as personal letters, complete family records of photographs and other interesting data will be necessary for my book.

Thanking you in anticipation,
I am, cordially yours,
G. Waldo Dunnington

Address:
12 Edmondon avenue
Lexington, Virginia
