I think I will see Mr Adams[3] on Sunday (tomorrow) morning at 12. o'clock - if he can come - Also I may tell you that I too have now received letters[4] from America! - odd rather - & perhaps you would like to come in to look at what the dressmaker has done for la petite rousse[5]; on Sunday morning at 10? -

This open card is unpardonable!

Perhaps[6] I may manage to call in upon you this evening - but I am greatly taken -
