My dear Muir:

In conversation with you while in route for Alaska, in 1890, you told about a lake somewhere in southeastern Alaska. of the same nature as Ma[illegible]n lake. Switzerland. [As?] the lake referred to has never been [illegible] so far as I am aware, I venture to ask if you will kindly send me a few facts concerning it. Will you tell me what glacier holds it in [check?] its l location, size etc. I wish to use the information in a t[illegible] book I am preparing and will give full credit. Hoping that you can oblige me. I remain sincerely your
