[Helen & Wanda Muir]
May's, Jan. 17, 1906Good morning Darlings-I wonder if this dark wet weather has got across the Colorado to your Buttes Bunkers & Obrone bushes. It is still raining her though only a drizzle this morning Never has the Alhambra been blessed with a better soaking, - between 7 & 8 inches & most of it has gone tingling down to the long thirsty roots.Yesterday I sent you $60. Wells Fargo orders by registered letter. Let me know when you want more. Ive been trying the oranges. They are thickskinned & smaller than usual & still sour for want of water last summer. Will send some if you want them. Business matters are going sluggishly this wet weather, & the way the new year is galloping past with little or nothing worth while accomplished makes me sigh like a methodist sinner.
Original letter dimensions unknown.
