My Muir, Dear sir:

I received that book all right & am greatly obliged to you.
Shall try and remember you if I ever see you again even among strangers.
We were the last ones on the Mt this fall untill they went up there to make this [Ice?] about a week ago.


We have about two feet of snow here now and the weather is about 10° below zero.
Hope you got around home all safe.
I am still in the [livry?] business.
Should like to have you come here in the middle of the summer and go up to the Mt [illegible] you would enjoy it.
The men that went up to make ice said the snow was about four feet deep up

there now, and about 50 feet of that walk that went up to that little cottage was blown down.
I suppose it is warm as summer where you are.
Well as I have got to go to supper and cant think of much more to tell you will close hopeing to hear and see you again some time.

Ever yours,

D.R. Smith



PS (Many thanks for the book)
