[John Muir]


Scappoose, Oregon, Jan. 27, 1903.

Dear uncle John:

I am in receipt of a letter from Celia in which she tells me she has received a letter from you inclosing twenty dollars to me with your love.
Dear uncle John I thank you - especially for the love.
Mother and I are better than we were - doing the best we can. As for me it seems as if all the light and beauty in life are gone - but may be sometime the sun will shine again.

Yours affectionately,

Anna Galloway Eastman.
