go South. I expect to sail direct for the Amazon August 15th and wish you could go with me. Quite a number of my friends say they would like to go but they cannot.

I hope you will get out to your mountain work, hope indeed that you have already gone and escaped the dreadful heat of the last week or so. It is now cooler here. Give my love to Mrs. Marshall and the blessed children when next you write to them, and with all good wishes, I am as ever,Faithfully your,[illegible]
