My dear Sister

It is a grief to leave and sail away without seeing you as I had planned this day. I was going to lunch with Ellen Robbins and then I was going to say good by to you but lo! I have been unable to leave

the house by reason of a heavy cold and as I sail away Saturday next on the Cephalaria I am obliged to [illegible] myself.

However my stay abroad this time will be brief - I shall be back again for the Summer and then we must meet.

I have always wanted to thank you for your kindness to my friend Mrs Haberley. She much appreciated your kindness

and so did I.

I wish you now my sister all sorts of good for the new year. To yourself and to your sister and to Miss Manning and may we all live to meet again.

yrs affly

H Hosmer

c/o [illegible] L Hosmer [illegible] hoping for a line when you care to write

Letter from Harriet Hosmer, to Anne Whitney, 1881 January 1
