The Leaflets couldn't be sold, if in the hands of an ordinary thief, for 5 cents. - Dudley, W.R.  A.A. Lawson says Dudley's position at Stanford in botany was that of an instructor having the title of full professor.

He gets 900 [symbol for British pound] at Sydney. - Redwood, supply standing = 150 cars a day for 200 years. S.F. Examiner, 1/9/'13. See clipping.
