You are, I imagine, our mightiest hunter before the Lord of chamois. I was only a child when I was first filled with pity, though not without admiring you, for one of your victims beautiful even in death. Will you allow me to offer you this book through which I hope there breathes even through a terrible tragedy the air of our high mountains and valleys to offer it to you in memory of our hunts and of the warm welcome I always received in that cabin on the shores of Lake Lovitel which our dear comrade M. Joseph de Lafarge transformed into a most delightful hermitage, a true stronghold against care. HENRY BORDEAUX Le Maupas December 1st, 1921.
