My dear Miss Addams:-
I returned home only [a] few days ago, and since that time I have been very busy attending [to] the most pressing matters which I found awaiting me. I expect to begin reading your manuscript tomorrow, and hope to finish it in a few days. I should not venture to make any changes in it. If there should be any changes which I wish to recommend, I should let you know, and return the manuscript so that you could consider them. While in some manuscripts I recommend a great many changes,-–or even indeed a complete rewriting,--I doubt if I shall want to recommend any changes in yours. I suppose of course should there be a mere obvious slip in a word or phrase, you would want me to change that without consultation with you. When the manuscript and proof are returned to you, you would have an opportunity to see any such correction and to change it again if you desired.
