May we come on Sunday next, dear Mrs Paddon? - for as you kindly gave me leave to propose a day you see I have gone a step further and proposed my fellow guest and travelling companion Frank[4]! -

Have you forgiven me? Tomorrow [p. 2] evening I hope to see you and make my excuses -

With kindest thanks
Very sincerely Yrs
