My dear Mr Muir.

Thank you so much for your most interesting book, all the more interesting, as it was received from its author. I am so glad to see that you arrived home safely, after your long absence, but it must have been a most enjoyable time, seeing so many & interesting places. I am sending you the "Warabak" by this mail. I hope it will reach you in good condition,


for it was a very good specimen when I got it. I am looking forward to the end of next term very much, as father is letting me go over to New Zealand for three months to stay on my sisters station as I intend to take up farming when I grow up, as far as I know at present. I was just reading that chapter in your book about the Aime you climbed up that Pine in the gale. I would have loved to have been with you then, as I love anything to do with a storm like that. Do you think there

is any chance of you ever coming to Sydney again? You must not forget to come & see us if you do. Father often says how much he would like to see you again. With kindest regards & again thanking you for remembering me

I remain

Your Sincere friend.
