[4]I am fairly well - not well enough to have much energy to tackle anything serious in the way of work. I must next year see what tramping a little on a glacier will do. If anything will cause the oil of life to burn a little more brightly that is it I am sure. I was at a lecture a short time ago and saw a lot of Alaska slides on the screen. I was immensely interested in the series on account of your connection with the stickeen country. I hope you are keeping well and that you are better in every way for your long absence from home - and no worse for such long and arduous journeys.Yours very sincerelyGeo Nicholson.[1][letterhead]13. x1.03Dear Mr MuirYour letter of 28 Oct gave me genuine pleasure. I had often wondered where you were and how you were getting on. I envy your trip to Darjeeling &c: the "immemorial East" has been the dream of my life and I fear the reality will never come now. At least you will have had distant glimpses of the roof of the world. A fellow03307
