4, GRAY'S INN SQUARE,
My dear Miss Addams
I have been obliged to remain in [bed] for nearly 4 weeks & am now only allowed to be up for a few hours --
I have the greatest possible desire to see you -- if only for a few moments
I have a vivid recollection of seeing you with [Miss] Willard & I have had for so many years the deepest admiration for yr life & work.
Please spare me a few moments -- if possible
