My dear Alice
[Enclosed] please find the check, the cab is paid and of course I gave the dinner to the entire party as I said. I am sorry Miss Culver & Miss French were out but they had they had the compliment of the call.
I tried to get you later at John Fry's to see if I could catch you at the time, I am sorry now that I didn't try. I wrote you a note this morning from Mary Smith's, now that you are staying I will surely see you. Don't do any more shopping Dear -- nothing tires me like it. Love to all of you
Always yrs J. A.
