[in margin: Please send postal order fro $2. to enclosed address & charge to my acct.JM][letterhead]Nov. 29, 1911 -Darling Helen,I was so glad to get your cheery newsy letter of the 26th of October on my arrival from Chile after a long hard hard but most successful hunt for Araucaria imbricataBoth Bud & the baby will doubtless be somebody some day. As for yourself you have always been a wonderful shining somebody since your first appearance on this planet.I crossed the Andes from here three or four weeks ago to Santiago. Thence went south 4 or 5 hundred miles to Victoria, thence up the mountains to the snow & found a glorious wild Araucaria forest feathering the ridges & filling the glacier valleys & camped among them.Guess how happy I was & how I stared at & admired these ancient trees I've so long dreamed of
