My dear Mr Muir:

We have heard with great sorrow of Mrs Muir's death. I was on the point of going over today, but finally decided that it would be better not to intrude at this time.
Mrs Merriam and the children have been down for a few days but have now gone back to Camp Meeker, where I expect to join them tomorrow or next day.
Shall you go right back to Arizona? I suppose Helen is there still, and trust she is regaining health & strength rapidly. Wanda must have had a severe strain. Give them both our best love. Yours as ever

C. Hart Merriam
