Theodore "Ned" Sheldon was one of the Denison cousins that Sabin tutored in the summer of 1894. In this letter Sheldon
congratulates Sabin on her election to the National Academy of Sciences, and recalls her teaching the cousins about "fish,
frogs, polliwogs and snakes" that summer at Lake Geneva.

Dear Miss Sabin:
The recent high honor that has come to you is indeed gratifying to the host of your friends.
It only seems a day or so ago that you were showing us the intricacies of the internal workings of fish, frogs, polliwogs
and snakes in those happy days at Lake Geneva.
And now to realize the heights to which our estimable teacher has risen!
