My dear Mr. Muir -

As the twenty-first of April is drawing near we are again reminded of our dear author and hope our congratulations for his health, happiness, and co[n?]sequent prosperity will in someway hurry the books along.
The old man in the picture which had the honor to be placed upon your desk passed very peacefully away about a month ago. Dear old father, eighty-six years old, bright, happy and loved by all. There is no room for

real regret.
With love and best wishes from all of us.

Yours cordially

Mrs Franz Milcke
