A. Estabrook letter to H. Laughlin about Jukes pedigree

American Breeder Association - Eugenics Section E.E. Southard, Chairman C.B. Davenport, Secretary Eugenics Record Office H. H. Laughlin Superintendent 16 Washington Ave., Kingston, NY, Apr 20, 1914. My dear Mr. Laughlin, Pursuant to your request of April 16, and received here Saturday, I am sending you two charts. The big one is the most proof of Jukes I have found and makes me believe in the inheritance of criminality than any other. But it must be remembered that practically all of this chart are "teched" more or less with mental deficiency. The other chart is interesting and explains itself. I expect to leave here Thursday or Friday going first to Dannemore State Prison, then at once to Buffalo. I will keep you informed of my whereabouts. I thank you for your offer to make the trip comfortable and will write you if anything comes up. Very truly yours, A. H. Estabrook 2 enclosures
