8 I was indeed grieved last night when I came in & found you had just
9been. As I did not get an answer from you on Saturday night I made
10sure you would not be coming. I ought to have asked again on my post
11card that you should let me know. I am especially grieved about your
12friend because she had perhaps far to come. Her music would have been
13such a joy to me at this sad time when one needs all that is joyful &
14heart strengthening Please tell her how sorry I am.

16 Yours very sincerely
