[4] It took a month for me to get rested from my long journey; but since then my health has been about the same as in California. but I dread the cold winter weather which seems already to have set in. The ground was white with snow when I awoke this morn ing. Three years just two days ago since I arrived in California_I have commenced the study of phonography and am making some progress. but see that it will take close care- ful study and a good deal of practice to make me a successful reporter but I intend to succeed. Love to you, John, to the children and to Louie from Annie L. Muir.Portage Wis. October 21_1888.Dear Brother John,So often have I thought of you since I parted from you, that I hardly seem to have in reality been parted from you. I suppose that in reality means that your influence over me was so great that it reaches me even here.Many were the lessons which I learned in the California school. some of them hard to learn
