[Robert Underwood] Johnson
[Ca gan 1895]Reid's map is far the best that has been publishedI make's few changes in it. Reid has named, I' see, some of the tributaries of the Muir Glacier. The word Glacier of the Carroll Glacier runs down the main trunk of the Muir, which is confusing. Therefore I have turned it down towards the Carroll Inlet. But worse still, the name Cushing -Glacier is placed right in the middle of the main trunk of the Muir Glacier. Therefore I have moved it back to where (if anywhere) it belongs. Print this name in small type. Also I have written in the name "Howling Valley".alongside of Reid's "Endieott Valley.Professor Reid never explored this valley, nor set foot in it. I did thoroughly and have the right to name it. I'll send you some sketches of it for the next article in which it is mentioned. It is a favori te haunt of shaggy, long-legged, black and grey wolves? and their howls are the longest and dismalest I ever heard--hence the name.IllegibleBANCROFT LIBRARYIllegibleJume 1895
