January 28th 1902 Dear Mrs Muir. The loveliest cherries came to us today I ever saw and we thank you very much for so kindly and [beautifully] remember the invalid whose eyes brightened at the mere sight of the beauties. The delicious flavor we have been enjoying by spells all day and I have earned a few [chat] my husband may have a relish later of which he is very fond. I hope sometime we may meet in person, and please come see us if you ever come to Oakland. Doctor joins with me I thanks and kind wishes . Sincerely Emily D. Wilson 593 Sycamore St. Oakland.
