My dear Symons -
Forgive my not writing before - I have been driven to death with endless matters -
We are going up tomorrow to see the pictures and meanwhile I have been sending out the circulars -
I hope you will come down and [p. 2] see us before you go out of town -
You have been charming in all this matter of the dinner, and I still marvel at the kind and endless trouble you took -
Always sincerely Yrs
