Annie L. M[uir]
The Wells family & Mr [Gowran?] speak highly of the Alhambra Valley. But they do not seem very strongly attracted to that country generally. They went at a wrong time. It looked very brown & dry [to?] them - They were glad to see the green [illegible] again - but it will not last long. It will soon be all white again - But then the rich bright spring-time will follow. How lonely your home must seem without Wanda! I have a very warm place in my heart for Wanda & Helen. But they are still little girls.- I do not think I ever told you how much I enjoyed the Book, you sent me - "When all the woods were green" so vividly was it written that I almost felt myself one of the party. - I will write to Sarah [&?] all the others soon - Love to [all?] from your Sister Annie L. M.
[ca 1903 ?]
