Joanna [Muir Brown]
Annie [L. Muir]
Phillips Wis Dec. 5. ’81.Dear Annie:-I am indebted to you for several kind letters but your last gave me the most pleasure of all. An abiding trust in God, and peace which passeth knowledge in the heart is met truly the greatest good which it is possible for God to bestow upon mortal man; I am so glad you possess this gift. I have wished many times of late for a talk with you. We had hoped to spend the holiday at home and so have a good long visit with you all before we go south but I do not know whether it is possible or not
