Miss Anne Whitney,

The Charlesgate,


[postmark: BOSTON JAN 11 10-PM 19 01 MASS BACK BAY STATION]

[in pencil at upper left: 28]

My dear Miss Whitney, how I did 'feel to', both on Wednesday and on this snowy morn! but couldn't get to Belmont, and want you particularly to say you'll give me another chance. (I couldn't forget the way; I was there once with you to see La Vita Nuova, i.e., the new Leif.) My ear has gone wrong; always does when I am under anxieties. Dr. Blake is already to the rescue, and gives me the pleasing news that I could not safely have gone off, in any case, on my Jan. 23rd ship; but that the postponement gives him time to patch me up again. He's apparently in fine spirits, and looks like a clear sky,since Mrs. B. came home! No rift yet in our Pinckney St. cloud.

Everything going gaily to the Demnition Bow-Wows. We sit and wait, in farce-like despair. The man has vanished; also the keys. They're out with lanterns, searching for him.

Does not the tardy snow seem strange? like a barrier between friends. I hope you and Miss Manning escape colds; and I am You Both's



Jan: 11, 1901.

10 Yarmouth St., Boston.

Letter from Louise Imogen Guiney, Boston, Massachusetts, to Anne Whitney, Boston, Massachusetts, 1901 January 11
