Louie, Wanda & Helen
Juneau, June 6.
Cold rainy day. 9A.M.
We stop here only a few minutes & I have only time to scribble love to my darlings The green mountains rise into the gray cloudy sky 4000 ft. rich in trees & grass & flowers & wild goats.
We are all well & happy Yesterday was bright & the mountains all the way up from Wrangell were passed in review opening their snowy icy recesses & closing them like turning over the leaves of a grand picture book. Everybody gazed at the grand glaciers & peaks. & we saw icebergs floating past for the first
time on the trip.
We landed on two points on the way up & had rambles in the woods & the naturalists set traps & caught five white footed mice.
We were in the woods I wandered in twenty years ago & I had many questions to answer.
[in margin: Flower of M[illegible] spruce]
Heaven bless you. We go next to Douglas Mine then to Skagway then to Glacier Bay.
