[Page 4] The weather here reminds me of Alaska, cool and rather damp. Nothing can surpass the exquisite fineness and wealth of the farm crops' while the modulation of the ground stretching away from the rocky foamy coast to the green Lammermoor Hills is charming. Among other famous places I visited the old castle of the Bride of Lammermoor and the field of the battle of Dunbar. Besides, I find fine glacial studies everywhere. I fondly hope you are all well while I am cut off from news. Ever yours, JOHN MUIR
