Ida F. Westlake
907 Jackson St. Oakland, Cal Dec 30-03 Dear Mrs. Muir The box of beautiful Christmas berries arrived safely Saturday afternoon. Thank you very much for the remembrance. They were so pretty and still are. We have all enjoyed their bounty. I was so sorry to hear of Helens illness. Trust she is fully recovered by this time, and that you are having a happy and joyous holiday season, even if Mr. Muir is not with you. Do you expect him home soon?I have been with Mrs. Williams for the past five days. It was so kind of her to take me into her home and care for me. Had she not, I would not have gotten away from the Sanatorium for some time longer. I am gaining guile fast. Can see that I am stronger each day. Hope to be able to go to Martinez before long. Mrs. Williams and Ethel send love. With love and best wishes for the girls and yourself, I am sincerily yours Ida F. Westlake
