Sequoia May 9th 1903 Dear Mrs Muir, We arrived safely home Tues P.M. very tired but thankful to be under the shadow of the pines once more. Mr. [Cucher] is quite ill with a cold and I am not much better. [ ] had entertained as many as ten guests at one time while we were away, so you may believe she has not been idle. We are now taking care of a very rich man who has been threatened with pneumonia. We have engaged seven hours to be here on the 19th for your daughters and their friends. I can get a reliable guide and [ ] (the owner of the horses) to accompany the party at three dollars per day her charges two dollars for his services per day and one for the horse he will ride. He expects one dollar per day for each
