My dear Mr. Kingsbury
Mrs Rice lunched here yesterday, and Mrs Bowen thought her much mollified in regard to T. R.
She read me from a very interesting letter, I suspect from you, [although] she concealed the name of the writer.
I lunch at her house [page 2] on Thursday and will do my best. I have already had a long talk with Mr Jacob Schiff and am growing familiar with the New York point of view. Thanking you very much for your letter, I am
Very sincerely yours
