Dear Mrs. Lamb,
I have just got nicely settled in my home with my brother. We left so early last summer that we invited few friends to share our pleasure with us. Now I want to see my friends around my table, and often. I started to call on you Monday but was called in another direction and Tuesday is my day at home. Today to go out wd [would] be too great a risk. But I want you to come to lunch with me to-morrow Tuesday at one.
I do admire your courage and persistence and success in your specialty and want to talk with you – I have invited seven other ladies. But it will not be a formal affair. Please reply – by telegraph, if you can accept. Or not:
