307Toronto, Canada, July 3rd, 1895My dear Sir:I heartily thank you for your courteous reply to my letter. On the strength of it I venture another question Illegible that I omitted in my former letter, viz., the relative size of the Folgefond glacier in Norway, and (2) I judge from your article that the Muir covers the largest area of any glacier in the world. Is this so?I am also requested by the Director of Mines for the Province of Ontario to ask if you will furnish him through me with a list of any book or books on glaciers you may have written. If in print he would like a set to be sent here for which remittance will be atnonce made or they can be sent COD. If you have published no works on that subject could you then refer us to your magazine articles on the subject?Thanking you again in advance for an anticipated replyI remain,yours very trulyIllegible02000
