EDITED BY CHAS. F. LUMMISDear Old Muir:
Your letter takes a great load off our hearts. It is good to know that you are in good health and that dear little Helen is getting competent to ride 30 miles at a lick. That is splendid. I hope the child will get as strong as they make. Wanda must have needed the rest too, robuit as she is.
I hope you will soon be able to get at hard work, the blessedest invention of God for the sore heart.
Some of these days I hope to be in shape so that we can go together up and down my Wonderland. I would give a great deal to see you and the girls confronted with Acoma for the first
With love from all of us,
