Dan[iel H. Muir]
Portage, Wis.June 18 / 94My dear brother Dan,Your letter telling us you could not come is very disappointing. We hardly knew how to tell mother for she counted so on seeing you, indeed she asks every little while if you have come yet, and even moans, "Oh I wish Dan was here" when she is feeling real bad, and oh how many times our heart aches we feel so helpless, and you could know so well
