My dear Mr Cross
I am very apologetic that my review of Mrs Barnett's book has been so long delayed.
I have been unusually busy but am planning a two weeks rest in Colorado Springs early in April. If I promise to send you the review at that time, would it be too late to suit your purpose? I have read the book and have made a number of notes but have seemed unable to find time for the actual writing.
Hoping that I am not presuming upon your courtesy I am Faithfully yours
