Louie [Strentzel Muir]


St. Paul, Saturday eve,
[May, 1893]

Dear Louie:

I leave for Portage this evening at 8:10. Will be in P. at 3 tomorrow morning. Have had a pleasant trip so far. No dust. The Rocky Mountains well snow clad. Hope you all well. Met a Nantucket boy whose father sold the G-azette to Mr. Bunker.
Tell Helen and Wanda I'll bring something fine for them.

With love to everybody.

J .M.
