Marion Randall Parsons
Seattle, Sept. 15My Dear Mr. Muir:You will hardly believe me when I say that my feet are turned homewards at last. I hope to reach Berkely next Wednesday and will try to be with you a very few days later. A note from Wanda says that you have not been well but are now better. I did not notice the date - my letters have been a month on the way, some of them. Your note only reached me yesterday morning. We had a wonderfully interesting trip in the Sel[illegible]s. The glaciers are the05848
finest I ever saw, some of them ten and twelve miles long. At Lake May nine hanging glaciers sent avalanches down to form the trunk glacier, which discharged its [illegible] into the lake. Its front was about a mile wide and we judged must be fully a hundred feet high. I never saw an iceberg before.I hope that this finds you well and strong again. I shall be with you before many days now - have played truant too long.Very sincerelyMarion Randall Parsons
