1912had the most fruitful time of my life. Fain I would write about it, but it's utterly unletterable.I'm now on my way from Beira to Mombasa, after a grand trip to the Baobab forests of the Zambesi & Victoria Falls, & the magnificent glacial rock scenery of southern Rhodesia.From Mombasa I intend to make a short trip into Nyanza lake region, then home via Suez, Naples, & New York.This note goes direct to Europe on the Windhuk, so you will have time to write me at New York c/o The Century Company, Union Square.I'll be reading book proof there probably for several weeks.With love to all who love you I'm ever faithfully your friendJohn Muir
