Dear brother John:

Yours of late date gladly rec'd. Very sorry the Grippe has got you again. Glad to know by late reports from the Valley that you are much better. Thanks for Frank Abbott's letter. I've written to him, I have also rec'd letter from Brad Brown saying he would be here in March. I anticipate a grand visit with him.
We are all thankful that Helen is doing so nicely, and sincerely hope she may entirely recover. We are all well here. Sarah is herself again, as smart as ever. She was very sick with bowel trouble --would not take medicine nor have a doctor, and ate nothing. We were very much alarmed, but after weeks she began to mend.
The coast has been very stormy all winter. We've had a good deal of nice weather, and lots of damp and chilly days, I'm getting so well that I want to do something and can't find a thing to do -- not much business here, I sincerely hope that this will find you well. "Lang may your lum reek."

Yours as ever,
D. G. Muir
