My dear Miss Whitney
I do not know how to apologize sufficiently for my long delay in thanking you for your very kind invitation through Miss Murray. It was impossible
for me to think of it - I have been so immersed in work and cares of various [illegible, written over in pencil: kinds], but I do regret extremely that I should not have been able to meet you and to see your beautiful
place. & view.
with most sincere though tardy thanks and regret
Most sincerely yours
