Mr. J. M. -2.Mrs. Hague and I both look back with the greatest interest upon our trip to the Grand Canyon, and we both feel that much of the enjoyment of our trip down the Canyon was due to having you as a companion. The Canyon is, I think, the grandest, and most awe-inspiring view in the world. I know of nothing equal to it to anyone who has the slightest knowledge of geology or geological processes. Our trip through Colorado was most interesting, but we saw nothing in any way to compare with the Grand Canyon of the Colorado. Very truly yours, [illegible] 02188
