Dear Mother: This card is merely to let thee know that we arrived safely in this city at 12:45 last night, after a rather long but beautiful railway journey. We left Bern at half past twelve yesterday afternoon and took the through train directly here, as we thought it would be much less tiresome to stop over a day in a place like Paris than to take the night express to London. Besides it would give me a chance to get a glimpse of the great city, which though imperfect as it has been I am very glad to have had. Tomorrow we go to London and expect - to reach there about 7 P.M. - I enjoyed our trip through Switzerland very much indeed and think that it has done both uncle T. & myself a great deal of good. I shall never forget the beautiful valley of Lauterbrunnen & those snow mountains in the evening light. Expect to sail on the 25th. Affec'ly thy son F.R.C. Jr.
