Grandpa and Grandma are not very well, they seem so tired every day, but they are glad to have us here and want us to stay all the time. Dear Papa I want you to come home and so does Helen Mama wants you to come home very very much.Goodbye,Your loving little girlAnnie Wanda Muir[1]Martinez CaliforniaJuly 18, 1890My Dear Dear Papa,I do hope you are well now, and your throat does not hurt any more, and that the sun is still shining bright and that you had a glorious Fourth of July. The beautiful letters you wrote to us came day before yesterday, and O. how glad we all were to hear from you. it seemed such a long time since your letter from Victoria. Oh Papa how I wish I could be with you to see that great blue Glacier, and the lovely colors of the icebergs, but not to stay too long in any cold wind and fog.09173
