acquainted with your part of the mountains. I am sorry to bother you to write, but you can make it short. I am getting better, tho my [face?] is still half dead an one side and my right eye will never work for more than an hour or two at a time. Remember me very cordially to Mrs. Muir and the young ladies. My wife wishes me to add that she is still hoping to see Mrs. Muir here. I pledgemyself to see that you are not ambushed and forced to make a speech, if you come.Yours faithfully,Melville B Anderson
