[Louie Strantzel Muir]
June 21, 1905
My darling Wanda
Two blessed letters yours to day and Helen's yesterday, are here rejoicing us much in the hope that the desert air will be good for you all.
The Postman will return soon so I can only write a few lines.
I have readdressed 8 letters for you all to day. I have just found in Helen's desk the paper to Dr. Goddard did you want it sent. I did send the book.
I have been very sick this is the first day I could write since my other
letter, but I feel much better and Dr. Rattan says I will be all right soon.
It is a great comfort to have Cousin Frances here.
Ah Sun is calling so
Good bye my beloved three,
