3Others who knew her more intimately in the old days could more easily testify at first hand to her generosity and capacity for self sacrifice. She had the qualities of mind and heart which made her presence a joy and inspiration. Now we say, in this final event of her life, no evil has befallen her but good. She is hidden from our eyes, by a sharp turn which inevitably comes in every life journey. However the highway persists and the traveller goes on. This was the thought of Plato whose mind was a mirror for the natural and supernatural. Much more than this it is the teaching of Jesus of Nazareth who spoke as man had not spoken before and has not spoken since. Let us be comforted in His words - 03550"In my Father's house are many mansions. If it were not so I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you."George L. MackintoshMy dear Mr. Muir,I send you our pastor's remarks knowing that you will love to read them and have them for your own. Your kind letter came to me last week and I thank you for your love and appreciation of my dear child. I have been quite ill but am almost well again. I read with interest the article on John Muir in the "Craftsman" for March. My boys are well, excetpt colds. They are very busy and all that I wish. God blesses me in my children and my friends. But I must not write.With loveJulia M. MooresMarch 14th 190503550
