Louie Strentzel Muir


Sarah Muir Galloway


Scappoose Oregon Dec 16, 1903 My Dear Sister Louie Yesterday I heard of Helens illness and feel so sorry. I cannot bear to think of her as sick. I sympathize with you too for I know how anxious you will be until you see her again. I hope you will send me a few words so that I may hear of her improvement. Anna and I have had had colds and [ ] was sick for a few days but all are usually well again. We will all need to [ ] well, as the nearest doctor is twelve miles distant. I have been glad to hear of John in his wanderings by Maggie, and so glad to know that he is keeping well. Give my love to Helen and much to yourself. Sarah M. Galloway.
