December 16, 1916.

Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D. C.

Dear sir;

I am sending a copy of a patent just issued, which it might be well to put with the other copies that I sent with the manuscript.

This patent was taken out chiefly with the idea of covering a magazine of the cartridge-belt type; and is of importance in that it describes a device for making the loading of the cartridge perfectly positive.

Very truly yours,

Robert H. Goddard
