Wish John Happy Birthday for me and many happy returns. He has been of great help and encouragement to me in my attempt to finish the Washington cohps. He loaned me several of his maps and in fact he guided me on a memorable climb of Buckner. I'll never forget the first time I was at your house and met John. Dick Michelson drove me there. John met me with camera in hand. I had my picture taken even before formalities. Flattering I suppose to have my visit "documented".

Sincerely,
Bob Packard
