[Page 4] The weather has been very hot but is now cool. I am delighted with my Swiss trip. Have been over nearly all Switzerland and have gained a good general knowledge of its mountains glaciers forests & flora. By my long minute studies elsewhere I was able to read the main features easily. Just as I foresaw Norway and Switzerland were the main objects of my long trip & I feel that I have learned more by far than I could have hoped to do in so short a time. The Swiss Mountains & valleys are glorious & truly sublime. The forests and glaciers not to be compared to our own. The lakes also are very beautiful those of Lucerne, Zurick, Neuchatel, Thun, Brienz Geneva Constance in
