[Annie] Wanda Muir Hanna
Strentzel and John are growing so fast that Im afraid you will hardly know them when you get home. They haven't forgotten you and John says that you have "gone way off on choo-choo but Grandpa will "pitty poon turn home and bring John moons."We had such a fine visit with Helen and her baby this summer. Helen was very well all the time she was here and Muir Stanley is about the healthiest and best natured little chap imaginable.We have had lovely weather here all winter until a few days ago and everything is going well on the ranch.The Reids and Swetts are well.Uncle David was up from Pacific Grove a few days before Christmas and said that all of the clan there were well especially Aunt Sarah who seemed better than for years.There is a lot of mail for you piling up here but I don't think there is anything very important.I am enclosing some proofs of the [cures?] that the children had taken not long ago. Hope they won't be faded by the time they reach you.Hoping to hear from you very soonYour loving daughterWanda Muir Hanna
