Dear Miss Stanley
Thank you very much for your letter. It almost makes me believe that its my fault and not yours that I havent seen you for 654 years!
I should certainly have accepted your invitation to speak for Arthur. I want him back tremendously. But I should have been very little use as I’m very used up. I had to speak at six meetings every night!
