[Ann Gilrye Muir]
of all things, as your Father left the trunk for the person to send off, that he bought it from, however I hope you have received the key and the trunk too, before this comes to hand - I hope you have received the letter we sent off last Sunday night wrote by so many, they will all be glad to hear from you we have received the books you sent and I think those not proposed giving you them [was?] certainly much interested in your welfare - Now John I hope you will write as soon as your trunk comes to hand as I am anxious to know that you have received it safe. I hope every thing will suit you, your Father intended to send a silk napkin for your neck but forgot until the key was sent off, let us know how much the carriage of the trunk cost you let us know how many churches there is in Prairie du Chien, and which you attend, and if there is any Sunday Schools and let us know how you are getting on - there is a prayer meeting every Sunday night at Midland School and is pretty well attended I intended to send this letter with them to night We all join in love to you hoping your health improves - from your affectionate (write soon) Mother 00242
