2sheer from the water and witness enormous masses crashing and roaring into the river. Sometimes such masses fall that you will have to beat a hasty retreat and climb a tree to avoid the waves which reach 25 or 30 feet in height on the opposite shore.Now cannot you take the next train to Seattle, take passage on the Northwestern or the Alameda to Cordova, come to our cosy parsonage and go out to enjoy that glacier and the other wonders of this region at your leisure? The R. R. Co. and my other friends at the Glacier will make you comfortable there and Mrs. Young and myself will be delighted to have you here. You should start soon, as the river is high now and the glaciers most lively.I hope for a speedy and favorable answer. It would be a pleasure indeed to have you in my Alaska home before it is finally broken up.I am sending a little folder of views.Warmly yours,[illegible]04834
