Indianapolis. Ind.,April 1, 1870.Dear Mr. Muir:I believe that you promised me a lamb, but I do not know. I think you did. We got your letter yesterday. I was eating hickory nuts when Merrill came in saying, "Mama has a letter from Mr. Muir."I go to school and my teacher's name is Miss King. One day she said, "I will have to look out of the window because some of you behave so bad." To-day is vacation, only school begins Monday again. She said maybe she would leave school, but she did not. She went to Ohio, and she got back a little while ago. Are you all well? Goodbye.Yours truly,C[harles] W. Moores.P.S. I forgot to tell you Jamie Ketcham has got the measles. I am thirsty so I will have to go and get a drink.Returned.Give my love to the lambs. I would like to be there. Aunt Mary Graydon has a baby. Goodbye.G. M.
