19 July 1871 Salina

Dear Brother,

I received your letter today and will drop you a few lines now as I will have no other chance for some time. I think you will have no difficulty in getting work at $2.50 per day. As to setting up a shop of your own I believe you could do well but better come here and work awhile and see how you like it. If you come at all, come as soon as possible. I am in a hurry [to get] home as the thresher starts after dinner. So I will write no more at present. We are all well.

Your brother Robert Muir
