1834 [Kalorama?] Av. WashingtonJan. 14, 1903.My dear Mr. Muir:Your letter announcing the nuts and raisins was a surprise. You are altogether too good to us. The beautiful great brushes of raisins are a feast to the eye and the nuts the most delicious we ever tasted. As we eat them they warm our hearts, for it does us good to think that you thought of us.03139
