Prof. John Muir
I hope that your sorrows and sickness are things of the past and that health and hope lie before you.
My brother passed to the unknown land. How many times the silence compels us to ask "Where are they"?
My mother is nearing her one hundredth birthday. I feel that I too, have lived a long century
My earnest wishes and sympathy
Your friend Mary J Arnold
1908 Apr 6
