[3]affair somehow.I expected a letter from Wanda or Helen or some of you ere this. a note came from Maggie this morning & perhaps I may get a letter this afternoon. When Dan comes Mother will have six of her eight children with her. How Wanda & Helen would enjoy the Joanna children & Helen Hand. & the birds that throng the mulberry tree at the corner of the house. Love to you all(Dont let my notes burn)John Muir[2]to go on to Cambridge.I mean to start tomorrow if Mother is as well & hopeful as she is today. I fear I may not have money enough on account of unlooked for expenses, so you had better send $100.00 to Sarah with which to pay the return railway fares of Dan, Mary & her Helen. & a little more for Joanna who is sadly discouraged. Get a Wells Fargo note from Sherman, payable to Mrs David GallowayPortage,WisconsinThis also is the P O addressI feel fairly well considering the care Ive had & hope to get through the Harvard
