Mary [Muir Hand]
Dec. 16, / 94
My dear brother John,
Your very kind little letter was welcomed and I thought to answer it immediately but was hindered.
You ask if one of your books was sent to us. No. but I shall be delighted beyond measure to see one. You are very kind indeed to remember me
A letter from Portage tells me how much they enjoy your book there, and I know it will be appreciated here by us all.
We are in usual health.
Sending you Holiday greetings, and a promise to write longer when the precious book comes, I remain,
Affectionately Sister Mary
