seen doing but roasting in the sun we do not have in England. With all that we have also seen cold spots like Cashemere and north frontier. When on my way to Chilas and over the Himalays I had all the ice and snow I wanted and some stiff climbing up to 14.700 feet. Quite enough for an old man almost 70! I wish you were nearer and do some exploring with me, On the border of Chilas I saw four lakes that had not been seen by Europeans and are not in any survey map. As for plants I got some to try in England, but I fear they will not live, as we pass through the Red Sea.My daughter is going to see your Yosemite Valley & Grand Canon [diacritic] in Arizona. Do give her some hints of what she should see. My regards to your daughters and to Mrs Muir, who I should have liked to have meet. Do send me a line and tell me how you areSincerely yoursE. Furse
