Capt Roald Amundsen, Dear Capt Amundsen, Heartiest Congratulations on your great trip. Dont risk your precious life on an old airplane. If you are off again get a new machine before
starting and I also suggest a light winch for hauling planes out of water. I’m off on an Exploration Survey for Ontario Gov. and hope to hear of your success when I come back to civilisation in Sept. The best of luck & all good wishes to you. The Gades were
well when I left Boston. Sincerely Yours G. Vibert Douglas. (late of the Shackleton Expedition) Capt G. V. Douglas. 4193 Sherbrooke St. W. Montreal. Canada.
