[Louie Strentzel] Muir
I hope you are having a pleasant season in Martinez I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed the day in your home, and the kind hospitality of you and Mr. Muir. I hope the young ladies are well. My daughters are in school and very busy.I came home from the West with a renewed stock of health and have been very well indeed until two or three weeks ago when I caught this wretched cold which has made me very illindeed.Did you see the fine things said of Mr. Muir's book in the New York newspapers? The "Evening Post" had a charming notice of it.I am sending you herewith one of our publications, called "P'tit Matinic Monotones" which is such a pretty bit of book making I thought you might care for it.With kind remembrance to all the members of your household, believe me to be, my dear Mrs. Muir,Yours very sincerely,Illegible08548
