My dear Miss Addams,
The book-keeper at the National Park Bank promised to mail you a duplicate statement last Wednesday, so I suppose you have had the discouraging news that both your large checks are outstanding. Life seems hard when these things happen, but I hope that, with the [nucleus] you [page 2] collected in New York, the rest of the fund will not be so difficult to gather.
It was ever so nice to see you last week, and the next time you come –- I trust with Miss Smith too -– perhaps we can again have breakfast –- or lunch or dinner -– in front of my fire.
