Dear Mr Lukens

I thank you for your kind welcome home. I particularly enjoyed the mountains & forests of the Caucasus, the Urals & those of Manchuria. The Himalaya above Darjeeling & Simla Australia, New Zealand & the Philippines.
I am hard at work trying to reply to the 100s of letters accumulated last year- but hope to see you here ere long-
Give my kindest regards to Mrs Lukens & Mrs Jones & Lattie & beleive me ever

Faithfully Yours
