230 F. Bellagio3. S. Giovanni (Lago di Como) · Viale Giulio. Brunner — Co., Zürich u. Como. Dear Roscoe1:

I am resting here until it is time to take my steamer from Genoa4, July 23. We have had a wild day5 on the Lake today. All the mountains torrents are full and rageing and the tops of the mountains are white with a new fall of snow. The lake steamers are pitching like ocean liners and the wind howls in the pine trees.

W. S. C.
Mr. Roscoe Cather Lander6 Wyoming U.S.A BELLAGIO319
