[4]Much braver, he stands up on the steps and barks at all the strange men and dogs, just as if he felt big enough to take care of all this big house. Dear Papa when do you think that you can come home? it seems a long time since you went away. Baby is writing you a little letter too, and she asks mama if you can read that kind of writing and we think that you can. Please write to me soon my dear Papa. Good night. Your loving little girl,Annie Wanda Muir.[1]June 25. 1890My Dear Papa I doo hope you are well. I have been very well since you saw me last, but Mama and Helen had awful colds, they are well now, except Mama has the toothake. Grandpa and Grandma are very happy to have us here, they both look much better now. We drove over to our own home this morning every thing looked very pleasant. the windmill is mended and the tank is full of nice water, Mr. Coe says "they have pancakes every day and they are good ones too and plenty of fried rabbits."09174
