Dear Rose -

Here are the two tickets[6] -

Really will you undertake to put my creditors[7] off? Something must be done at once -

Will you make an appointment - Shall I come down and see you on Saturday afternoon at 5. o'clock? or will you look in here on Saturday morning on your way -

Ever Yours
