Unión Telef. 942, Avenida

Buenos Aires, 14th August. de 1917.

My dear Billie (with all due respect).
I received your dear letter today and as I have just time I am scribbing you a note. We arrived here last Friday and Sat. night we played Walpurgis night with the Opera at the Colon the largest and most beautifull theater in the whole world also last l night. But we only start tomorow at the Coliseo the 2nd theater of Buenos A, as Diageleff who is just behind us at Mondvedio Uraguay has already Booked the Colon so has got the Best of our Co this time. We came from Santiago de Chili across the Andes. For the first 6 hours one train to Los Andes a little town of about 1000 inhabitants who live right in the mountains there we took a hotel for the night and at 7 o'clock the next morning we caught the Transandine Express. and crawled up the mountains untill we were some 18000 feet high where all was just voids of snow we had very bad weather a regular blisard of snow otherwise the trip has many wonderfull sight but we saw nothing but snowswept mountain and plains up there with deep precipices below us. The storms come so badly up there that sometimes for month the whole train trafic is stoped as the storm is so severe as to sweap a man away like a scrap of paper and whole trains have been blown over you see now is about the worst time as it is Severe Winter. B A is lovely it
