Dear Mr. Avery: -
Your note just reached me so that Friday and Saturday make a short notice of it if you mean today and tomorrow.
I should be greatly disappointed if Inness were to leave town without coming to see me after so many years - and I need not say how pleased I shall be to see you all - Come this afternoon at three o'clock if you can - At five I have [p. 2] an engagement -
Or will you all come and breakfast tomorrow at 10.30 - or 11. if you prefer -
That would perhaps be pleasanter - so let us say tomorrow to breakfast -
Send a line -
