Mr. Muir., Dear Sir & Kind Friend:

I received to-day, (forwarded by Mrs. Swett,) the Ten dollars you have so kindly given me for a "Christmas" present. This, so generous of you, and so timely, for my means are limited, and such a present, spent carefully, a little at a time, enables me to buy things which I really need, but, which, if the means were lacking, I should be compelled to do without. Accept my grateful thoughts for your kindness, May God reward you a hundredfold, is my prayer 02653

"When Death's dark stream I ferry O'er, A time which surely shall come, - In Heaven itself, I'll ask no more - Thank just a Highland Welcome."

As ever,

yours truly,

John Bagnall
