[4]is pretty well now. Day before yesterday Aunt Mary and Helen and I had a fine walk on the hills, Aunt Mary does not get tired as easily as when she first came. I have not had a bit of trouble with my eyes since I have been wearing "goggles" and will be ready to learn some lessons when you come home.When will you be home? I hope you will be here soon for we are a rather dull household and need you to keep us lively.Lovingly your daughterWanda Muir[1]Martinez CalifSep 2. 1897My dear Papa,We received your fine long letters and are all glad to hear that you are having such a a good time and how I do wish that Helen and I were with you on this trip.
