V.S. 11

We shall surely be lonely with both our boys in the
far away country BUT, Mrs.Knight is of the same mind as I
am that, it is a matter of education ,of experience and,if
he never follows it up, it will broaden and make of him,a
man without fear or favor from any man and it will aid him
in the career he has mapped out for himself,that of law,if
it amounts to nothing else.

From this time on, he considers himself a member of what
ever expedition you may send or take north this year.

I am anticipating that, you will be given what you ask,
by the London Cabinet and what you will ask will be that you
be authorized to outfit the best and up to date most up to
date expedition possible and which you alone will know how to
outfit and that,by the time you return to New York, you will
have assembled at Seattle or Vancouver,a ship outfitting and
which you will send or take north early in August and that,
instead of the wild catters "rescueing" the boys from Wrangle
Island, you will join them with your expedition and proceed
North from there,using Wrangle as a premanent base.

At any rate, Joseph has this sort of an outline in his
mind and, until given a different course, he will steer by
this star.

Upon receipt of your letter concerning Charley Anderson,
I immediately wired you that you could perhaps learn from his
Uncle who is an Episcopalian Priest at 224 The Crescent, San
Metao Calif, as this is the only address we have for him.
Lorne had one letter from him at Copenhagen and a card in
1920 from Kodiak Island but, since then, we have heard nothing
from or of him. Hope you are successful.

Mrs.Kinght is well and in an awful stew just as all wives
are when they have moving on hands for, we have purchased the
old home of her f ather and will move there soon.

This letter will perhaps reach you in London and I am
sending it to your New York address and it will perhaps be
forwarded.

I read your letter to Dr.Goucher and he was wonderfully
pleased when I told him you had sent him your regards. He has
read every word of both your books and regards them as the
greatest treasures of his library.

Yours very respectfully;
[J. Knight]
