It is the fault of that wicked D'Oyley Carte[3], dear Miss Lenoir that I was not on my knees at your feet directly you arrived! - all of which shall be explained - for am I not longing to see you! - May I come tomorrow evening - instead of the morning? Say at about 6 o'clock or 6.30 - or will you be there later on as you used to be - say at about 10 o'clock -

Or better still will you both dine with me at 8 o'clock tomorrow and then we can talk all matters over -

One little word in answer - or a wire tomorrow morning -
