John Muir


Dear Brother John I wrote a letter to you 2 or 3 weeks ago and when I got a chance to post it I forgot time after time but now I will make the best of it by telling you what has happened since. Since that we have moved into Portage John Reid has moved on to the farm & Mary and Anna and I have been at the High School one week end Joanna is at an intermediate but none of us have been [illegible] yet as Mr Muir the superintendant has been in Milwaukee ever since we have been here but Judge Dotty have us permission to go to such schools as we would be likely to get into till Mr Muir returns but now there will be two weeks vacation and the superintendent will be back before they are ended the teacher in the under flat is Mr [Megoffin?] the teacher in the intermediate School is Miss Boothe. [Staber's two children are at th?] high School [You?] little boy about two feet long is a better [illegible] than either you or I. I guess and he [studies Arithmetic Algbra natural?]

Philosphy [latten etc.?] last Sunday when I went into the Presbyterian meeting I was surprised to see one of the seats occupied by Mr Staber & his Wife & family & I would like to have a talk with you John as this is but a poor excuse

I am getting along fine & hope you are
