My dear Mr Muir

Do not think me ungrateful for not thanking you before for the lovely books and the nice visits I had with Mrs Muir and Mr Keith which I enjoyed very much. My trip accross the



winter and so much snow that it seems this winter has no end and a trip through the West Indiens [Indians] will be quiet agreable. How about you joining? it would be such pleasure to see you again. With kind regards to Mrs Muir also Mr & Mrs David Muir I am sincerely
