Dear Miss Whitney:
I wished very much that it had been possible for me to accept your kind invitation for this afternoon. I always feel as if the Queen had asked me, when you invite me.
But today & for three days to come I have to grub away for dear life getting ready things for the Woman's Journal. Then Thursday & Friday I have a breathing spell, & could come in to see you on either of
those days, if it would be convenient, in the course of the afternoon. Thursday, Friday & Saturday are the days when I breathe; Sunday, Monday & Tuesday, those when I dig; & Wednesday the Journal goes to press.
Mrs. Dargan said she was going to tell the
publishers to send the Journal a copy of her book for review, & I am looking out for it eagerly, but it has not yet come. I am glad you think so well of it, for I feared the plays might have suffered from her being unwell when they were written.
Always affectionately yours,
Alice Stone Blackwell
