My dear Miss Wald
Graham Taylor and his wife sail for Europe next Saturday on the [enclosed] steamer—so to speak.
Could you send a box of [Canton] gingers to him and a few posies to Mrs Taylor with my compliments.
The account I spent in your name for flowers for Mrs Smith's funeral was two dollars—shall we call it exchange? or I shall send more of course if necessary.
[What is?] this rumor of a visit [page 2] to Chicago from you—I hope very much that we shall see you here—it's very nice to think of even as a possibility.
Always faithfully yours
