[Page 1] Edinburgh Dec 14 1902 Dear Mr. Muir I was glad to receive your letter of 17 Nov telling me that I had been at the Grand Canon of the Colorado after all. You see underneath a photo of myself and three others looking into it from what I suppose was Grand View point. At any rate the point is about half an hours easy walk in a westerly direction or perhaps NW from the Grand View Hotel. I have to thank you for the beautiful description you sent me from the Century Magazine. I will make a point now of seeing each month’s Century and hope to see more articles of your’s therein. You will not doubt have heard that Maggie Lunam has had a bad time of it lately with bronchitis but is getting [ ] again. I wish I could look with some sort of hope to taking the trip you mention to the Forests and Glaciers of Alaska, but at present I cannot see my way to do so. I am sending another Post Card
