Dear Miss Geffen1:

Miss Cather has gone to California3 and she will not, therefore, be able to attend the Annual Meeting on November 19th. There is illness in her family, and she asked me not to forward her mail. I have just returned from a month's vacation, which will explain the delay in acknowledging your letter.

Very truly yours, Sarah J. Bloom4 Secretary
