Dear Miss Whitney:

You are all goodness, and 'this nigger' is apparently ungrateful. I am much afraid I could not possibly come on the 20th! Please forgive me, - as I don't deserve to be prorogued, - and take my love and thanks. I often think of you. (At present, and for long, I am empty-headed in other respects.) It 'perks me up with majestick Pride' that you like Patrins.

Yours much and always, nevertheless,

Louise I. Guiney

5th January, 1898.

Auburndale, Mass.

Letter from Louise Imogen Guiney, Auburndale, Massachusetts, to Anne Whitney, Boston, Massachusetts, 1898 January 5
