[Daniel H. Muir]
 Hickory Hill July 21, 1871.Dear darling Dr. With extreme pleasure I now address a few lines to you, And heartily congratulate you on the successful termination of your college course, and am happy to hear of your bright prospect for the future. At present, I am enjoying a good old visit at home, but much regret, that we could not have made our visits at the same time. I received your good, kind letter before leaving Madison, but shall not now attempt to answer it, as it deserves more time and space [in margin: than I can now spare, but as I have much to say to you I shall write in a short time So Good bye, Your loving Sister Mary [Mary E (Muir) Hand Riggs]]July 22d 1871Danl. Dear I have been intending to write to you every day for a week just I have been greatly disspointed for the present in regard of what I intended to do - but still hope I may be able bye and bye - I am happy to know by your letters to others that you are succeeding very well every thing considered - I hope by this time you are begining to feel at home and are successful with your patients - Ann came home for a few days at the beginning of the month -
