K.C. Mo- June 15- 1885

Dear Brother John;

I know you want to hear from me and so write a few lines. Writing is still very hard for me or I would have written sooner.

I am nearly recovered from my recent attack. [squiggle] Am able to sit. up nearly all day. and to take short rides again.

My lungs have not been injured by it; and the doctor says they are doing well. He advises a change

to a cooler climate, and I intend going home to Portage as soon as I am able to trave;; which I hope will be this month, as the two or three following are usually extremely warm. The other members of the family here are well, with the exception of father who is very feeble now, but still quite happy. I was looking for a letter from you during my sickness; but no doubt your time is very fully occupied -

With love to you all I close- hoping to hear from you soon -

Your Aff. Sister Anne L. Muir. J. sends love.
