Montreal, Canada, Oct. 16 .
I'm writing this on the train just starting across the great St. Lawrence River for Burlington, Vermont, on beautiful Lake Champ lain that you have read about in Farkman's books. Then I'm going to the White Mountains for a few days, and then back to Boston. This is a very large city, and the great flood of crystal water from the Lakes with many islands is magnificent. It is a fine bright morning, keen and frosty, and the red and yellow foliage along the river banks is gloriously brilliant. I'll soon be home.
Your loving F.
