E. C. Love
D[aniel and Emma?] Muir
live in Englewood, Chicago. He is at home occasionally but his business, buying and inspecting lumber for a large firm, keeps him away from home the most of the time. I was fortunate enough to find him at home for a few days when I was in the city last winter. Aunt Lizzie also lives in Chicago. It is only a short ride from one house to the other, although it is necessary to make a transfer from one car line to another. [Ozro?] is in New York City. He has a position in the Auditor's office of the Central Railway of New Jersey. He likes New York very much. You will think we are far apart - He on the Atlantic & I on the Pacific. If Mother knew that I was writing, she would join me with kindest regards and best wishes. I am well aware of your - I mean the Doctor's - reputation for answering letters but if you consider this lengthy epistle worthy of a reply, I should be much pleased to hear from you. Truly your friendE.C. Love
