Daniel [H. Muir]
boarding with David - his family is all well - A great many of our neighbours have commenced to grow hops so there is hop yards, and hops houses, in every direction, although they are rather discouraged this year the prices are so low - a great many do not approve of the business at all - I hope you received the messenger I sent last week - May God keep you and bless you is the sincere wish of Your affectionate Mother Farm Oct 18 1868Dear Daniel I received your welcome letter of Aug. 25 letting me know of your intended visit home, I shall be happy to see you. I am glad to know that your health is good, although I rather think that climate does not suit you very well. I am sure you would be glad when you heard where John is, and how happy he is in California - he intends spending the winter there - and you are still busy amongst machinery and comfortable I hope - Our orchard has done well this year - we had about 70 bushels of apples, they were very large and looked beautiful.
