[in margin: 844 Letters of [underlined: 1879] from [underlined: Louie & Mrs & Mr Strentzel]] 00865  Sept 9, 1879Dear John, Sending a letter to you under present conditions seems little more certain than intrusting a message to a wild forest bird: yet I can only try, that you may know I still exist, and that I keep you ever in remembrance. You must think it strange to have heard no word from us during these two long months, but just now a letter came from the Postmaster at Port Townsend saying that my note directing him to remail my letter to Fort Wrangell, reached him one day too late for the steamer
