NUMBER FIVE BANK STREET My Dear Mr. Boynton1:

I have been very long in thanking you for your nice note3. An absence4 of six weeks occasioned the delay. I am always at home on Friday afternoons, and it has occurred to me that you might be able to stop on Bank street5 for a cup of tea some Friday afternoon when you are in town2. I should be so glad to see you if it so came about.

Very cordially yours Willa Sibert Cather
