[Jeanne C.] Carr
Ind' Apr 3d
Dear friend, you have of course heard of my cal- amity The sunshine & the winds are working in all the gardens of God - but I I am lost I am shut in darkness My hard toil-tempered muscles have dis-appeared and I am feeble and tremlous as an ever sick woman Please tell the Butlers that their precious sym- pathy has reached me I have read your Stone Mason with a
great deal of pleasure I send it with this and will write my thought upon it when I can My friends here are kind beyond what I can tell and do much to shorten my immense blank days I send no apology for so doleful a note because I feel Mrs Carr that you will appreciate my feelings My kindest regards to all my friends
Most cordially J Muir
