Mother [Ann Gilrye Muir]


John Muir & Louie [Strentzel Muir]


Portage, Dec. 13th, 1889.

Dear John and Louie:

Hoping you are all well, I send you this small token of remembrance. Our Christmas meeting is now very small indeed, but our absent ones are by no means forgotten.
I expect you know what a sad experience has been Joanna's; however, her health is improving now. Wishing you every happiness, with the compliments of the season, I am,



Dear Brother and Sister:

I join with Mother in the inclosed wish and greeting. I congratulate you upon the happiness of your circumstances this joyful Christmas time, and I wish you both many returns of the same. With a kiss for baby, I close,

Lovingly your sister



Portage, [Wisc]
