[Ann Gilrye] Muir
Portage March 19th, 1888
My Dear Wanda
I received your nice letter some- time ago. I have also received the pretty bouquet you were so kind to send to me
Where you live I expect you see flowers and blossoms in abundance every day, but where I am now, there are _
_not a green leaf to be seen out of doors. there are only snow and water everywhere so it is very unpleasant to go out of the house, but we know we will soon have fine weather and sunshine, and be able again to walk around with pleasure
I shall hope to see you sometime, I am sure I would be [illegible] pleased to meet you
I think it must be very pleasant for you
to have such a nice sweet sister to play with all the time I hope you will both be spared to be a joy and a happiness to all your friends and all around you_
I will be pleased to have a letter from you again sometime
With kind regards to you and all your friends I close from your affectionate Grandma Muir
