National Geographic : 1931 Nov
Dear Jim: This isn't Mrs. Bob. It's me under a Costa Rican palm! I'm turning into a long haired poet down here in this Crusoe country. Never saw such colors. Imagine a whole jungle of orchids! That's just about what we had out of Limon on the way up. Most beautiful mountain ride I ever saw. Feeling fine. Marvelous climate here in San Jose. And this new Gran Hotel is something to write about - no wonder Costa Rica's proud of it. Drop a line to the United Fruit Company - I forget the address* - and get the dope on their cruises to the Carib bean and West Indies. Do it before you get any older. (*How could he?
