height for a mountain as you know them, though rather remarkable for one that rise a directly out of salt water and it la the highest point in the Puget Sound ha sin. There are also two natural lakes at the base of the Mountain, one at 350 feet and the other about 850 feet elevation; that is what gives me my water power here.I know you would be most interested in the view from top of t hi a Mountain where you get a panoramic view of the exclusive coast line of Washington and British Columbia. I believe it is one of the most extraordinary views in the world.I hope you will visit the Northwest again and please do not fail to let me know or come here, I would like you to see these Islands, you can come by Steamer direct from Seattle or Bellingham.I hope you are enjoying good health and with kind regards, I am,Very Respectfully,[illegible]RM-C.
