P. S. I have sent my photo by book post & registered it but they so often go astray so hope it will arrive all right
6th December 1894
My dear Cousin,
Very many thanks for your kindness, in sending me your beautiful Book "Mountains of California" I am very pleased to have it. & have read a good deal of it already. You do give such a delightful description of your lovely country. Mountains flowers & trees. I quite long to see it. Perhaps I may some day. I'll live in the hope any way
I enclose you my Photo: it will perhaps recall to your remembrance "the last of the Gilryes" as I am known in the family circle. I hope to get to Dunbar at Christmas for a day or two. They are so pleased to have received this Book safely.
We have had no snow or frost here yet, but so chill & foggy. I hope you are all well you are always busy, I know.
With [much?] love to Mrs. Muir & you all & again thanking you kindly for remembering me.
Believe me your
Susan M. Gilroy
