by Olef Ellison, I have read it again and again with delight I am going to take it with your letter etc, to a lady, an old and valued friend of your fathers and who is very familiar with your writings. She spent a Winter in California a few years ago, and was in San Francisco and much regretted that she did not see you. Our family doctor who was resident Physician at the General Hospital often speaks of your father saying how much he was liked both by the hospital Staff and patients. But I fear I am exhausting your patience, so I will conclude with kindest regards to yourself and family also your brothers & sisters.I beg leave to remainYours most Sincerely.Eliza Munro216 [R?]obinson Street HamiltonDecr 10thDear Mr MuirA very severe illness is my excuse for not acknowledging long ere this your letter to my daughter Henrietta It was so good of you to write and give us Mrs Brown's address as well as the whereabouts of the other members of the family.
