Far beyond the gloomy and forbidding river gorge, where through twelve miles of space, looms the north wall of the canyon in all its grand symmetry of cliff and terrace, we note as our eyes become more accustomed to the variety of form and color a towering gateway opening away into a deep and dizzy gulf that recedes far into Kaibab Plateau. This is the Bright Angel Amphitheatre, a noble canyon valley two or three miles wide, fifteen miles in length, and deep as the main canyon itself, and second flows Bright Angel Creek, the Colorado's most beautiful tributary.

Have just returned from a beautiful ride around the rim of the canyon. How wonderful it all is I miss you all very much and hope to be with you [illegible] I have enjoyed the cookies so much. Kindest regards to you & Mrs. Robinson. May A. Wesener
