Louie [Strentzel Muir]
[letterhead]July 23 1888Dear Louie We have been working hard these last three days eating for Picturesque California & am truly reluctant to cease our toils in this commendable direction. This is our last day here It is now 4 P.M. & we go abroad the steamer tonight for Vancouver So that we will have only one meal more [then?] farewell to fatness & smooth downy digestion. Have been more than half sick since leaving home but now am feeling well & eat majestic massive meals. Wish I could stay here until I got my bones decently fleshed over
Victoria, B. C.
