[Louie Strentzel Muir]
 5notebooks already Lots of sketches glacier Mtns, Indians, Indian towns etc So you may be sure I have been busy & if I could only hear a word now & then from that home in the California hills I would be the happiest & patientiest man in all Hyperborea. I am alone in the cabin the engine is grinding away making the lamp that is never lighted now rattle, & the joints creak everywhere & the good Corwin is glinding swiftly over smooth blue water about half way to St Laurence Island, & now I must to bed, But before I go I reach my arms towards you & pray God to keep you all.Good night.01016
