Dan[iel H. Muir]
I saw Henry Reid in Madison. He did not know that you were home he is attending the univers- ity We had a fine time at Mad' JM Ind' Sunday Sep' 1st 67Dear brother DanWe hope your health improves We arrived here last Thursday I mean to start for the south tomorrow. I feel touches of the old depressing melancholy which always comes when I leave friends for strangers. I do not know a [illegible] I shall go, nor when I shall return, but I will take good care of myself, & I hope that none of my friends will have anxiety about me. You must not expect to hear from me very often, for my facilities for writing will not likely be good. I anticipate a great deal of pleasure from this walk and also a good deal of fatigue
