Dear Miss Addams,
Will you pardon me if I return to you this check? I am very glad to have been of even this slight service to you, and indeed I am much indebted to you.
The small amount of time spent on Mrs. Hulbert but poorly repays the benefit you have been to me in service and in inspiration. If you will give me opportunities to repay the balance of my obligation to you I shall be indeed grateful. Mrs. Hulbert is doing nicely and I hope she will have permanent benefit from her operation.
With high personal regard I am
J. B. De Lee
