[4]We read your article on the Grand Canon [diacritic] of the Colorado in the Century, It seemed almost too wonderful and vast for me to comprehend, I will have to study it awhile to understand it. I scarcely see how you found words to describe anything so unusual. I would like to see some of the views for myself.I hope you will send me anything from your pen which I have not seen, for we all enjoy them so muchLove to you and yours[1]Port Norfolk VaJan. 22, 1903Dear brother John:I was glad to be remembered by you in your postal order at New Years (for I suppose it was from you) but I would have been greatly pleased to have received a letter from you as it is a long time since I have heard directly. I hope you are as well as usual and busy with your writing.03146
