[Page 3] This was a fine specimen of the gentleman-farmers' places and people in this, the best part of Scotland. How fine the grounds are, and the buildings and the people. I think such places would greatly interest you. I showed them the picture of Helen and Wanda and of course they thought them wonderful. I begin to think I shall not see Keith again until I get back, except by accident, for I have no time to hunt him up; but anyhow I am not so lonesome as I was and with David Douglas' assistance will make out to find my way to fair advantage.
