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 Muirto 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
Original letter dimensions: 20 x 25 cm.
