July 8, 1905
My dear Mr. Muir -
We are much troubled to heave the news from you of your being called home by Mrs. Muir's illness, and we hope to hear that she is doing well and is on the road to recovery -
I am glad that
[in margin: M. Hooker
my uncle took you to his house and made things comfortable for you. I knew he would do all he could - His wife and daughter started to the ranch for a visit a few days ago - just too late to see you - Hope Miss Helen's lung is much better for the mountain air
since she started south.
My mother and father join me in sending warm regards to you -
July 8 - 1905
