My dear Muir:
I reached home about ten days ago with my wife and daughter, and found the former much improved in health by her stay at Sissons. Since arriving I have ordered a number of things sent to you, books, maps, etc., which I hope will reach you all right.By this mail I send a copy of the four sheet map of Alaska, with our route marked on it in red ink.
With my kindest regards to Mrs. Muir and the girls, I am,
We are looking for your visit. Your [room?] is ready.
