My dear Mr. Muir:-
The day after you left us Louise became very ill - the strain under which she has been laboring so long having resulted in a collapse. It will probably mean several months of complete rest before she is herself again, but we hope she will get up stronger and better than ever. I have now taken her to the country where she can be away from the children and have a complete change.
[in margin: survived the perils of the Fourth without accident. All send hearty greetings to you and Helen.
We all enjoyed your stay with us and often think of you in the petrified forests of Arizona. I am sure you and Helen are making the most of it and finding much pleasure and profit in your excursions.
Mr. Keith is painting away as hard as ever. Vickery wants to have another exhibition when he opens his new store. I enclose a letter from Prof. Rolfe and hope you can make use of his suggestion in regard to books on the petrified forests.
The babies are thriving and
