[4]Granite Canon puzzles me, and you are the only one who can set me straight. Does the ice slope down & terminate in the canon, or does it slope up & join the tributary glaciers on the mountain sides? I think the former is true; at any rate I am satisfied that the upper part of the canon is closed up & that the drainage is back under the ice into Muir Inlet. Cushing has gone to Germany to study for a year or more. The other “chimney-[illegible]"[5][letterhead]are at work in or near Cleveland, where I myself return in a day or two. Mrs Reid joins me in kind regards & I am very sincerely yoursHarry Fielding Reid.01529
