[Page 3] O how I would like to camp out in these shaggy hills but I must make haste and get back to my babies. I have to go to Norway a week of two and then to Switzerland and the time flies fast. The steamer shakes so much with the machinery I can hardly write. It is a cloudy day and showery at times but the sun just now is streaming mellow
