My dear papa

I hope you are well. We are all very, very lonely with out you. Lilian says, “Trust do want my Papa to come home”. We received your letter yesterday. Lilian has just finished a little letter to you. Grandma’s eye is slightly better. Dear Papa, I must go to school now.

Your loving little girl

Annie Wanda Muir.
