[Jan. 5, 1902]

Tardy, but none the less from the heart, I want to thank you for your delightful book, which reached me Christmas eve and was one of the most enjoyable of the remembrances brough[illegible] the day. I have just been reading Burroughs' narrative of our
stay in [Kodiak?]. I wonder if you recall the day that you l[illegible] and I [lay?] in the [illegible] on the mountain there. — one of the few days in my rather busy and prosaic life that remains at an ideal picture. Long life and happiness to you!
