My dear Mr. Muir_
Your book with its much-appreciated inscription, came to me in time to be my traveling companion, and has afforded me great pleasure and interest - also many happy recollections of places and times where much of the material of the book gave greater pleasure to campfire and mountains
My present days have by no means the joy of the mountains. I never was meant for a sailor, and though this steady ship and fairly smooth sea make the trip far more comfortable than any I have had on the Atlantic before, I haven't the slightest desire to prolong it by an hour.
Mother wishes me to give you her love and tell you she had your letter. She thought
she had given you our address - it is
Bank of Montreal
9 Waterloo Place
Pall Mall S.W.
Letters from there will be forwarded to us. It looks so far as though the weather would offer no objection to our landing at [Grumstorm?]. I suppose we shall go on to London after about a week, and from there start excursioning around
