[Ann G. Muir]
Dan[iel H. Muir]
for the last two weeks, and not a drop of rain - and seldom any dew all that time. With us harvest will commence on the fifth of July as we have a field of barley nearly ready now - and now I must conclude by telling you that our faithful favorite, Nan - that has been with us in all our journeys for so many years.- is dead and buried two weeks ago - I don't know whither her place can ever be filled - Joanna joins me in love to you - from you affectionate Mother June 29th 1870Danl Dear I received your your very welcome letter of Apr 24th and am happy to know your health is good - although you are working hard, and studying hard - Well Danl I trust you will not always be climbing the hill Difficulty but will soon be able to attain to that position of usefullness to which you aspire - trials are often for the good of our never dying souls - and are met with, in every position of life so let us look beyond the things of time and space, to an interceding Saviour for solid comfort, and we will not be disappointed -
