[3]Lexington Kentucky? We did not receive any, Helen is delighted, indeed we all are, that you have met Richmond Hobson under happy conditions. Your account of the dinner with Tesla has not yet come.It would be grand if you could preach of God's Forests to President McKinley. It does seem to me to be your duty to go with Sargent and work your best at Washington Think of the beautiful woods being left with nothing mightier than Pinchot's little plan between them and destruction!All is well here except the dust and drouth, but the sky is cloudy now. Aunt Margaret was here when your letters came, and is as well as usual. Wanda and Helen have been perfectly well all the time, and I am not so lame as I was last month.Aunt [Elte?] has paid 2 checks for $600.00 and $750.00 and Mr. Ipswitch $500.00 Mr. George also sent more so there is plenty for taxes.[4]Don't you need more money? If so, there is plenty hereLovingly, your faithful wifeLouie Muir
