Overlook, 8 mo. 12 1878Dear Alexis,Please tie a blue ribbon on "Castor" and a red one on "Pollux" to distinguish them until I see them. Do not on any account get them mixed; the inconvenience that might arise from this may be very great and would unsettle the right of inheritance which "Castor" is without doubt entitled to. As I expect to remember him on my return to the heated regions I desire thee to use all lawful efforts to maintain his identity.
