[in margin: Newtons at Dunbar]July 28 10[letterhead]My dear Mr. Muir:We went to Dunbar this morning, and had no trouble at all in finding Mrs. Lunam's house. Her daughter welcomed us most cordially, and served us tea. The mother is now too feeble to be out of bed till one o'clock, so we saw her in her room.The daughter very kindly went down with us and showed us your old home, also that of your grandfather across the street, the parish church, and the harbor, round past Cats' Row, where she said you ran when a boy.04837
