[in margin: Send me a box of [illegible] & anything marked [illegible] Care Goodall [Park?] & Co. John Muir Glacier Bay Alaska][letterhead]5a picture of the mt & gls & I heard something saying cheerup, cheerup, & I looked around & saw a little striped marmot about 8 inches long standing on his hind legs looking at me like a little boy. He was standing in the flowers & had a nice time but he must have had a dark cold time in his nest in the winter. Then I hear something else as if he felt lonesome & pitiful & I looked & saw a big brown marmot, another kind standing like a rusty old man with small eyes, standing on the other side of me & this is the company I had. Here are their pictures. The ship is going. Goodbye Helen Wanda Mama Grandma Grandpa01446
