My dear Papa,
We are all very well, and I hope you are well and not very tired after the long stage ride. Your telegram from Wawona came yesterday. Mama says the mountains all the way from that place are glorious, she told me about the great sugar pinees and the lovely Azaleas and so many beautiful caskeds.
How I wish I cood be with you today. O dear Papa when will I be strong enoufe to climb the mountains with you. Don't you think in a year or two I might? Helen keeps asking why Papa does not come home to baby today? I she is very well and is now running races with little Brownie. We come home in the daytime but stay at Grandpa's at night. We took all your note books over to Granpa's hoase. This morning
Mamma read about the dear little water ouzel singing in the clear cool spray. O I wish I cood see it and hear it sing. We found another little goldfinch on its nest in the rose near the tank; and it is so sweet and gentle and lets us come very near without flying off. baby says she wants to write a little letter to dear Papa. and there are many good kisses too from baby and me.
Your loving little girl,
Annie Wanda Muir.
