My dear Mr Johnson

I care little about names No map will melt the ice or kill a single crystal or flower. Let Prof Reid have his way if you think best. After me he has the best rights such as they chance to be.
And now R. U. when R. U. going to tell me what you are going to do with me this summer. I am at your disposal for Alaska or Sierra.

Ever cordially yours
