Louie [Strentzel Muir]
[in margin: 877]Letters from Mr. & Mrs. Keith at Berkeley have just arrived in answer to Mother's invitation. Willie has been sick again, is now better, & they promise to visit us soon. They ask "Where's Johnnie?" I do not know whether to send this letter to London or to Edinburgh, but hope it will reach you before you cross the Atlantic. You have missed several letters, Wanda has written to you every week. My eyes & head are very much better, — If only these bleak winds would let me alone! The children send, O so many kisses to you. Goodbye Dear, Heaven keep you from all danger.Louie MuirMartinez, CaliforniaSept. 5, 1893.My beloved husband,Your letters of Aug. 17 from Chamouix have just come, and while we read your glowing description of that wonderful scenery we were happy, thinking how you were enjoying it all, but then came the end about that "horrible cough" O John why do you keep rushing along from place to place without resting! There is nothing in this world of so much value as your being safe and well:
