[Margaret Hay Lunam]
September, 19, 1902
My dear Cousin,
I am always glad to get your letters from old Dunbar, telling the welfare of yourself & Maggie & all the others our friends & kin. That throat trouble of Maggie's seems long & serious, If it does not leave her soon she will just have to come to California. the dried parts of which are very favorable to sufferers from asthma & most throat & lung troubles. All the families hereabouts & in the eastern states are well or about as usual according to last reports. Maggie Reid is rather better though far from strong. David is well & busy with the ranch & a new house, now nearly finished
Sarah is in Oregon near Portland on a visit to her daughter Celia, who has been in Portland about a year, & to Anna who with her husband Mr Eastman & their three children left Wisconsin a few months ago & are seeking a new home in Oregon. I have been in the mountains only about two months this summer & am now writing another book. I have not heard from Dan lately, Annie Muir writes often She is now the only one of the family left in Wisconsin. Joanna & all her family are now in Norfolk Virginia Mary is still at Kearney, Nebraska, Our Wanda is now her 2d year in the State University. Helen I guess will likely take the same course. Love to all Ever your loving cousin
