466 Laurel Ave. St. Paul My dear Wanda— I want to thank you so much for the beautiful pen tray you sent me. It was so dear of you to remember me and the thought of your friendship was a great comfort to me in these days of my terrible trouble. I am not going to try to talk you all that we’ve been through. Our blessed mother seemed in the best of health when in about the home she left us [were] to come back. I want you to know how much she loved you all and how fond she always was of your dear Father. I am keeping house now for my Father. My brother John is home for two months vacation and Helen is in High School. Jim is in California [ ] and [Neal] is at the Michigan College of Mines. Will you write me soon all your family news. If your father should be anywhere near St. Paul, will your tell him to pleaser to come to see me. Ever lovingly yours, Margaret Muir January fifth
