3I return the pamphlet you so kindly sent me. It was exceedingly
4interesting to me as I passed my child-hood at the foot of the
5glorious mountains des-cribed by the writer. I have been wishing to
6return it to you for a long time, but heard you were no more at the
7Museum & had not your private address.
