text: Dear Balfour,
text: I was so glad to get your letter from Cholimsen - a fine spot for a last look at the hikes over which we wandered so happily. The memory of a tour like ours is one of the few things one can remember all one's life - or at least until one goes dotty. I simply loved it and enjoyed it every bit as much as you did, thanks to your company...
text: Yours ever,
