My Dear Miss Addams:
Mr. Kinley tells me that you have expressed your regret that you will not be able to be present during the Installation exercises next month and has asked me to persuade you that this is something which you ought to do.
We certainly want you here very much, and we do not feel like accepting "no", for an answer to our invitation. Can you not possibly make your arrangements so you will be here, at any rate, on Wednesday, October 18th?
Do come if you possibly can.
