Louie [Strentzel Muir]
 01184I am sure that beyond the grounds of Mammoth Springs Hotel, up among the lakes and fountains of the great rivers, there must be the charm and healing balm of your own high wilderness.So long as I can feel that you are getting better, and having a happy visit with your dear mother and sisters, I shall not fret overmuch about the affairs of the ranch or the work that I can not do just now.Little Wanda is well, and bright as a little bird: she still goes to sleep kissing your "bonny letters," and is trying hard to learn to read them. The cedar and wild rose bear many many kisses from "Pap's own baby."Your faithful wife, Louie
