[John Muir]


[Helen & Wanda Muir]


May's March 5,/06

Darlings Your last letter came yesterday (Wanda's) telling the wild blizzard weather story. I hope to start back to help you endure it next Wednesday night the 7th. Possibly the Swett deed to the waterfront land may be ready by that time so I can bring it with me. So you can look for me on the 9th if all goes well. Surely those storms can't last long. It must be hard to keep your rooms aired while at the same time keeping out the finest of the sand-.
Glad Helen you are braving it so well. Keep up the fight we will win out I feel sure, Had heavy rain last Saturday. Cloudy & [showing?] yesterday calm clear & lovely spring today. Heaven bless you darlings, so prays always your loving father

We are all well here as usual Hope that tooth is not tormenting you Wanda Maggie is better than usual
