This is to acknowledge the safe arrival two days ago of two packages of Glacier Society flyers, dispatched by you in November, including a complete membership kit. We are making these available to the many tourists who visit us and very much hope that the end result will be a positive contribution to the Glacier Society. The flyers have been stamped with the Port Lockroy base stamp, so you will have a record of membership applications originating from us

Contrary to the dire predictions in the press, there does not appear to have been a significant decline in the number of tourists visiting the Antarctic, at any rate after our first month of operation

Of the staff of three at Port Lockroy during the southern summer, two of us are ex-Stonington expeditioners, so we are extremely interested in the Glacier project, and wish it every possible success. The ultimate dream would be to use Glacier for the restoration of the American and British bases on Stonington Island as a private project without government interference!

Thank you very much for your prompt response to my request for the flyers.
