Helen and Wanda [Muir]
[Page 1] Near Obun July 23, 1893 Hello Helen and Wanda my two darling babies. I am on a steamboat sailing down through the midst of beautiful islands along the coast of Scotland on my way to Glasgow and Edinburgh. You can see the brown heather on the hills and the sheep scatters about like white dots. It is all beautiful hereabouts like the coast of Alaska only there are very few trees all the hills and mountains are green and brown with grass and bushes and heather
