"I will answer it [your letter] as best I can for it is impossible for me to go into details of my travels here & am a busy woman. 1. I was born in 1859 at Worcester Mass. 2. Was educated in New York & Germany...". The letter continues to provide details of her life and adventures: "travelled extensively over all countries of Europe... and did much mountaineering in Tirol & Switzerland. Our last and greatest journey was in India, Ceylon & Java & lasted 2½ years... We spent 2 summers climbing in the Himalayas... We climbed 3 pioneer peaks which gave me the mountaineering record for high climbing for women, when on Mt. Koser Gunge I reached 21,000 feet...", and further biographical information, including books she had written.
