P.O. Box 609Manaos [diacritic] Brazil 6th August 1912My dear Professor,I was, indeed, charmed to receive, a few days ago, your long and interesting letter of the 20th June and was quite astonished to hear that you had penetrated into the very heart of the dark Continent. I knew you were going to the Zambesi, but the source of the Nile must have proved a later inspiration. How I should have like to have been with you!Why did you not sweep me away from the Amazon and let me accompany you as a devoted secretary and auxiliary? Probably, you know better!Well, I did not go to Africa with you, but stayed on in the steamy valley, where, I am glad to say, I have prospered in business and kept well in05242
