Mother [Ann Gilrye Muir]
[illegible squiggle]Christmas Day was a very quiet one with me We have no reunions now but still I enjoy ery many blessings and comforts to be thankful for and I had many presents kindly sent to mePerhaps you know of the great trial through which David is passing at present _ on account of Katies sore "disease" it goes on slowly but surely she has now to lie down most of the time and seldom complains _ she has many sympathizing friends, and many presents have been sent to her at this time
