Daniel and Emma [Muir]


Love to the dear little one may she be spared to be a comfort and blessing to her parents —


1876 Portage Sept. 10th

Dear Daniel & Emma

I sincerely sympathize with you both at this time of sore trial and bereavement, how sad to lose the little one, around whom our affections so readily and firmly [ sing?], but in our distress, let us ever remember that the dear one is not lost but only gone before — and we will look forward to a happy reunion in a happier time where there is no more death —

[Page 2][2]

for some days past Margt. has been quite sick with [illegible] complaint but today is much better, and John B has been in Minenesota for the last two weeks, and will be there for some time yet — Joanna’s health is wonderfully improved she is now able to take a short walk or make a short call How thankful I am on her account — Anna is again teaching she sends you much love and sympathy — We will still expect a visit from you all, sometime this fall I think you will stand more in need of a vacation than before it will doubtless do you both an amount of good — I trust you will be able to realize the comfort to be derived from resting on those precious promises made to us by a loving Saviour suitable for every position in which we may be placed — that God may bles and comfort is my sincere prayer for you — affectionately Your Mother ——— —
