John Muir & Louie [Strentzel Muir]
Portage, Wis.Dec 22nd /90My dear brother John, and Sister Louie,It does not seem so very long since we were exchanging Christmas greetings, and yet we are just about to enter upon a new year, and soon will have passed another of the milestones on our life journey, as we pass along the way, dear ones are leaving us for the better land; and we go on, under the clouds, if we try to go alone, but amid the sunshine (even if we do not see it sometimes) if truly under the guidance and direction of our heavenly Father who cares for the least of us.
