Sarah [Muir Galloway]
never mummur or a frown. There is a great comfort in that she does not suffer, but sleeps a great deal. She has entered her 90th year and must just be worn out.I had a letter from Mary lately, she was telling of their pleasant Christmas time.Helen was home for her vacation and though the boys could not come all were well.Joanna seems to be nicely settled in Richmond. They were in usual health, and hoped Bernice would keep gaining. She seemed to thinkthere would not be so much malaria there as it was nearer the mountains.Cecelia is enjoying her trip in the South. she was for some time at Fort Worth Texas, and when she wrote last was seeing what she could of New Orleans, she intends to visit with Grace when the cold weather is over, so she will see a number of other places before going there. She has been 11 years with that Company in Portland and was in much need of a rest. Dan's family
