12that is one reason I have not got at it before.Give my warm regards to Mrs. Muir and the daughters. How the girls do grow up! Abbie, the baby you used, in your conceit, to show me how to hold, is a young lady of 17 - and Alaska is nearly 16! Wanda must be over 16, is she not?I am still getting illustrations for my sermons from Alaska. Got some fine ones from your Glacier Bay article, especially from your "gospel of the mountain flowers". That is one of the best paragraphs you ever wrote.Are you doing much literary work now? What was your special field of operations this summer in Alaska?Must stop. God bless you! Good bye.S.Hall Young
