[letterhead][1]Mar 28 1887Mr. John MuirDear FriendIt is now two weeks sine we landed safely home from our long journey, & full time that we send you a few lines, letting you know of our arrival. I am sorry to say Walter has not improved but rather gone back in health. After we left you, he seemed to pick up a good deal & the medicines were helping him. In Salt Lake City he did not feel so well, but improved again in Colorado. So that, at (Colorado Springs we had a delightful days drive--but some way he hurt his foot & lamed himself so that when we got home he was obligated to keep per- fectly quiet to save the foot. This kept him in the house so close that he could gain no appetite & has been gradually running down ever since. In that weak condition.
