Letter, 20.8.1925, from Laur. Christiansen

Hr. Roald Amundsen, Oslo
Two years ago you were kind enough to present us with the map you used on the South Pole journey. This is now stored in Bergen Museum’s fireproof vault, pending the opening of our collections on the 4th floor of Bergen Museum’s new historical-antiquarian building, probably next year.
Now we come to you again and ask for your consideration and goodwill by remembering us with an object from the flying expedition and, in a similar way, a memento from “Maud” when it comes home. We are grateful for what we can get, but allow us to suggest that we would very much like to have maps — to be able to have a part of our map wall as a Roald Amundsen-tribute in our museum — for the edification of posterity. We dare to assure you that the objects will be treated as they should be.
We therefore hope for your goodwill and remain
