Found Old Egypt interesting also,- its long green palmy valley between brown deserts, marvelous towns, temples, & monuments of the lang syne of humanity opening telling views into history & making the dead live again.Had perfectly glorious reviving times in Australia & New Zealand, there the flora is so novel & exciting I had to begin my botanical studies over again got a press & made big piles of specimens working night & day at them counting all labor light. The Philippine03366flora too is magnificent though I saw comparatively little of it. I visited many interesting botanical gardens that you would have enjoyed especially those of Singapore, Calcutta, Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney Rockhampton Port Darwin & Christ church.The last trace of that miserable Manchurian rheumatism left me ere I reached Ceylon - never was sick a since hour after leaving Shanghai,- am now perfectly well & weigh ten pounds more than at any time during the the last eight or ten yrs74503366
