Phillips, Wis,Jan. 31, '86.Dear Brother John:As Willis is writing to Annie I will send you a few lines. I send you my photo, which I hope you will like. I also send a photo of our house. It is not of much account, but as you did not come here last summer you may like to look at it. The photographers work has been imperfect and it is spotted. Doubtless you will be looking some for "Father's picture." I hope to send it ere very long, and I know I can improve on what you saw. I will not forget the waterlily picture for Louie, when next June lilies come.Thus far we have had a very pleasant winter and are all well as usual. I trust you are enjoying good health. Love to all, and a kiss for Wanda.Affectionately,Mary [Muir Hand]
