Valona Aug 9th 05

Dear Mr Muir,

I received your letter this evening with sorrow to hear of the death of your Dear wife, and mother. You have, indeed, suffered a great affliction, a true wife, and a devoted mother! No higher eulogy can be pronounced upon any woman,
With feelings of the deepest sympathy for you and yours, I remain, dear friend,

Yours, Very Sincerely,

Francis George.
