me too much, anyhow it ought to be a good shaking up for the blood.Shortly I am rather expecting a young American to stay with me one of the [Coolidges?] of Boston who is now out on Safari taking photos of big game and when he has finished, we may go together to try to snap a [bongo?] which he has never done before, and it would be the only photo taken of this very shy and timid antilope (buck) which never leaves the bamboo forests above 9000 feet; if we succeed I will send you one.Hoping to hear from you again and my letter will find you in good health.Believe me yours very sincerelyL.
