Harry Fielding Reid
Feb. 3, 1902.
My dear Mr. Muir,
I am preparing my annual report on the Varieties of glaciers, and hope you can give me some information about the Alaskan or other western glaciers. I have not yet had any definite information regarding the effect of the earthquake of 1899 on the tide-water glaciers; have you? I was very much interested in your account of the Alaskan glaciers in the Report of the Harriman expedition, and the pictures in the two volumes are splendid. I was at Mt Hood and Mt Adams last summer and saw their glaciers pretty well, but I had to come home without going to Mt. Rainier, on account of the illness of Mrs. Reid's mother, resulting, I am sorry to say, in her death.
With kind regards
I am yours cordially
Harry Fielding Reid.
