Sarah [Muir Galloway]
Carrie Owen and her son Arthur is at her Father's just now, she said that her husband and older boy had quite a little visit with Helen at a place about nine miles from Daggett, they had a stop while on the train and Helen rode over on her pony. You will have been with her for a while this summer.I had a letter from Mrs Sanderson not long since she has always kind remembrances for you and the girls and for the others of the family. She still regrets not having met more of them while she was West some years ago. Her children are all married and she keeps house, having an old friend to stay with her. She was in Milwaukee at her daughter's home when she wrote to me last. I wrote to Mrs Lunam a day or two ago, I have not heard from her for a long time, but perhaps you will have had a letter. I heard last September. Those were fine Photo.'s that Mary sent us, Maggie said you had one too, and how well she looks, she says her boys are now located in Spokane, Wash. Joanna still keeps well, but Bernice has not been well for some time, they sent her to the Mountains in Virginia. I had a card from her yesterday, she said she was very much better and would be going home about the 1st of Oct. We here are all about as usual.Affectionately yours, Sarah.
