San Francisco Apr 13 1881
My dear Mr. Muir –
Don’t believe a word of what Upham has been writing!!! for you might think that he alone is pleased to hear the good news – as it is not so – The [Payor?] family are all interested in the little miss as well as the Upham family & you will please accept our congratulations with the request that Mrs. Muir will kiss the baby for each of us – this is quite a task I know
for according to the last census we number ½ doz – but it will be a pleasant one we know. With the permission of Dr & Mrs. Strentzel as well yours & your good wife’s, we ask the privilege of joining with you in your happiness and add to the affection that is centered around that dear “little love” at the Albamba – Please accept our very best compliments to all, and an extra kiss for baby –
Your friend [illegible].
…San Francisco, [Calif]
