[4]nary person like me and I am at a loss how to keep up with her. It is perfectly great to be with the other G.Q's one more and as you may easily imagine our principal delight in talking over the trip and the people of this summer.We are soon going to play the great Scotch game - golf for which02637[5]I must get ready so I will relieve you and remain with loveDorotheaIt is sad that we have to wind up so soon, but in the country young people have to be out in the air a good deal. We have seen various numbers of the H.A.E.B. lately, & all look well, but when we get together it is impossible to refrain for talking of the trip & all the sight of Alaska. I have heard02637[6]that at the time of the earthquake there the Muir Glacier had entirely disappeared but hope it is not true, for it would be too sad to think of that wonderful glacier having been destroyed.It is time to stop now for Mary wants to add a line.With loveCorneliaBut [tired?] little Beth will put in a word or two again. I received your letter letting of 02637
