My dearest and best of Glenns -
Im sorry - demed [sic] sorry - but "I'm afraid I caant [sic]"[.] Ross and [I] rushed off the orther [sic] morning suddenly and sureptiously [sic] to Washington on a species of go - not necessarily rum go - and have only just returned - the family are tolerably excited, and a [Perrine?] run after the Capital go would, I think, cause the cup of endurance to run over and tricle [sic] down with indignation - Besides mon cher if thing is risked at all it will have to be [p. 2] in company with Ross who last night made an engagement to drive down to the races; and of course I couldn't drop him, and his buggy sans ceremonie [sic], so perhaps I'll see you there, but really I don't believe it possible to get down at all . -
I'll be in your office tomorrow afternoon. - .
Going to the Cousins soon?
