Louie [Strentzel Muir]
his dear ones & home for so long. before coming here & since I have been reading a great many of his old letters written when at college, when in Canada & in Yosemite Valley & other places & they all breathe the same warm spirit of thoughtful loving, brotherly kindness which has always been so precious to me. I sometimes think Louie that you would like to read some of them. I hope you are in good health dear Louie & also Wanda & Helen & your dear Father and Mother. I would like very much to see you all, and will always gratefully remember the pleasant winter Sister Sarah & I spent with you & your untiring kind efforts to do us good how much I would enjoy an opportunity to reciprocate but I begin to dispair of ever seeing any of you in this country but we would very much enjoy seeing you nevertheless. I expect you will be quite lonesome without John & I know how to sumpathize with you, but you will be buisy & the time will soon pass away & we will
