I hope you will take it as it will mean our hearing about it too.
Remember me to your daughters and good wishes from Marian to you all.
I have expressed a package to you containing your maps [illegible] to Marian.
325 WEST ADAMS STREET,
My dear Mr. Muir:.
I have wanted for a long time to write and thank you for your new year greeting and send you one with a large wish tucked in, that I might see you some time during the year,
a visit - in which we could talk and you would again tell me wonderful things. I hear people are trying to entice you down here, remember if you do come, that it will be the great pleasure to have you with us.
I suppose you have heard of Helen's great happiness
and Marian's departure, and I am left alone, so you see you must come down and console me.
The trip you spoke of in Marian's note sounds so interesting, especially so now, as you told us a little about what such a trip would be.
