May, May 18, Having visited the principal points of interest in Europe, as well as in America, I would say that I have seen nothing like the Grand Canon of the Colorado for grandeur and for its unique views.
Having gone down the canon to the winter cabin of Mr. Hance, I must say that the canon changes to the view at every few hundred feet, and the small hillocks that open from the rim change to mountains as you go down. May 21, June 2, Doubtless the most unique sight in the world, and the greatest possible surprise is to walk up from these tents to the edge of the canon to realize the full depth of the canon. The visitor should look at it from the rim on the point just this side of Point Bissell.
The morning light is best from that position, while from the station the best hours are 4 to 7 P. June n, Party of German Editors and Artists. COX, Carthage, flo. All went to river on the i7th.

October 26, Tacoma, Mt. Bather, Mt. Shasta, and Sierra Nevada Mountains, California, and the lovely Yosemite Valley, I declare I did not see in America a scenery more or as strik- ingly wonderful and impressive and sub- lime as the Grand Canon of the Colorado. In Europe, I do not remember I have ever seen anything by which I have been as impressed except, perhaps, by the splendid White Mount at Chamoise, when I saw it for the first time fifteen years ago.
October 31, Departed from canon October 31, Left New York City, November isth, en route to California, but my suspicion of the grandeur of the country compelled me to stop off at Flagstaff. The time of the year for a trip to the canon was any- thing but safe, considering the lateness of the year, cold weather, and idea of being snowed in, but, nevertheless, our trip was without events of any mention until the night of our arrival at Captain John Hance's, when a terrific snow-storm set in.
It lasted until morning. The wind at the present time is blowing a gale, and how we will find it on our return is a question. Must trust to Providence for a safe return. During this writing we are all sitting around the fire. To compare the grandeur of this canon is beyond my power. I can hardly believe my eyes, and must say every one that goes sight- seeing should never forget the Grand Canon of the Colorado.
Sincerely yours, E. Close of visiting record for year April j, University, Chicago. Bridlington Quay, England. Indescribably grand.
