6write a sketch of your life doings, explorations etc as he would like to have it printed in his news paper. I saw him a short time ago and he still insisted on me making some statements as he knew we were familiar I told him I had lost the datas best I would be pleased to so if I could get an outline from you I did have your work mountains of Cal. trip to alaska and some other writings and they were read by friends and they appreciated them so highly I was just so foolish as to part with them. Seven years ago I had seven7cousins from Melbourne, Aus. (a cousin, wife, two daughters, two sons and a maiden cousin) on a trip around the world they took the last I had I think your trip to Alaska. If I recollect in one letter you state that after the "forest commission" reported you would send me a copy of the proceedings etc.; but so far I have not received it I know it would be very interesting. Please give my kindest regards to your brother David as you will recollect I used to go across the hall at the University and enjoy a good visit you both. Happy days.
