Daniel [H. Muir]
2upon it In whatever part of the bright world your home may be – you and yours will ever be daily remembered by me, as you have been in days and years gone by Our news from California lately has been very surprising John having been married on the 14th of April to Miss Loui Strentzel only child of Dr G Strentzel living on a large fruit ranch two miles from Martinez, the Rev Dr J E [Dwinelle?] performed the service he was from Sacramento, so I send you a piece 3of the wedding cake which arrived here last Friday, with a great profusion of flowers and blossoms of many fruit trees, many of them were quite withered, the news gave me much pleasure as it will add much to his happiness and comfort to have a home About [three?] weeks ago John R left home for Nebraska he expects to be absent some time all your friends here are in their usual health Thank you Anita for the pretty card you sent me — With sincere love to all, I would say good bye — Lovingly Mother
