[Page 2] I’m going home. I bought some nice little things for you in another queer town called Savanger, and in still another called Throndheim and perhaps I may see something you would like in Bergen. I have enjoyed the sail in Norway very much for more than a thousand miles I have been sailing in narrow channels between high mountains in beautiful scenery. The walls of the channels or fiords as they are called are about 3000 or 4000 feet high and are covered with heather and grass
