⬩W⬩S⬩C⬩ My dear Mrs. Walter1:

I think I have had one or two notes from you asking me to come in for tea. I have a symphony engagement for almost every Friday afternoon, and just now I am so busy working on my new book3 that I go scarcely anywhere. You will4 excuse my not turning up for tea, won't you?

Very sincerely yours, Willa Cather
