My dear O K -

I am just bored to death with the influenza!! - And I live in a state of exaggerated hysterical remorse because of letters I ought to have written - most of them to you!! -

Come over soon! That is the nice thing to do - Mrs. Garlant[4] will have us both again at the same time - and we will [p. 2] go some where together -

Always affectionately

Here is the receipt you wish me to sign - and a thousand thanks
