Clarks Station Sep 13th [1873]Dear Mrs Carr: We have just arrived from the Valley & are now fairly off for the ice in the highest & broadest of the Sierras. Our party consists of the blessed Doctor & Billy Sims Artist & I I am so glad that the Doctor will have company when I am among the summits. We hoped to have secured Clark also a companion for me among the peaks & snow, but Alack I [underlined: must] go alone. Well, I will not complain a word for I shall be overpaid a thousand thousand fold. I can give you no measured idea of the time of our reaching Tahoe but I will write always on coming to stations if such there be in the rocks or sage
