I am about to publish a small school book entitled "A Tour Round the World" and should like to include an illustration of the Amazon in its forests. If you could help me in this I should be most grateful. Of course I should acknowledge my indebtedness to you in my book.
Yours faithfully | J. W. Page2 [signature]
