D[avid] G[ilrye] M[uir]
Lincoln Neb May 5/92
Dear Bro John
You see we are still here. Juliaette arrived seven hours after you left & was disappointed at not finding you here. She brought your [laundry?] with her. Dan is trying so hard to get us to remain here. it makes it hard for us to decide what to do. According to his talk it looks as if we could make a living here & perhaps move even the first year. If you needed me as much as you seem to Juliaette it would not be so difficult for us to decide. I m afraid I could not stand working in
the sun & fear I would not be of much use to you. I wish I knew more about that village of yours If I could find something to do in addition to selling real estate &c &c I am feeling a little better but haven’t much [‘Sand’?] It seems hard to get my spirits & hope revived. We intend to go to Crete in a few days to see Mrs Waterman. Juliaette says you must be sure & write to mother as she feels lonesome. I wrote her yesterday We thank you for all of your kind acts & intentions & send love & kindest regards to you & your family
Your brother D.G.M.
Wish you could help us to decide.
