[Annie Wanda Muir]
[Louie S. Muir ?]
the mormon choir sing, and enjoyed hearing them more than any thing Ive been to for a long time, they are all wonderful singers and to hear 150 such well trained voices together is magnificent. Yesterday evening we had a jolly masquerade (just girls) here at the house and I was a gost, my costume consisted of a sheet, and by the time I had offered a little bur[illegible] cork around my eyes and eyebrows, and a liberal dose of flour and let my newly washed hair fly I looked like the shade of the wildest [slavonic anarchist?] you ever dreamed of. I didnt know my face had such ferce possibilities.
