Mother [Ann Gilrye Muir]
he looks very thin and pale - your father has bought a house and lot he is getting a small barn put up and getting a well dug. They call it three quarter of a mile from miles corner it is beyond the railroad station - we will not move for a month or so as it is occupied - there has been a great fire at the station a long row of houses have been burned and the elevator containing thousands of bushels of wheat was burned to the ground - your father had about five hundred bushels burned - part of it being winter wheat. I am glad Dan and the girls has had such a good opportunity of attending school here I hope you will write soon - from your affectionate Mother ________ _______
