6 I hardly expected you in the rain, yet was disappointed. I didn’t
7send the book because I hope you come next Friday & Miss E– with you.

9 I am going to write a note for the club, but don’t ha yet know
10subject certainly. Am very busy finishing a story. Will let you know
11subject as soon as I can.
12
13 Do come next Friday. We differ very much in many of our views, but I
14have such an admiration for your sincerity & "standfast"ness" that I
15like you as much when I am differing from you as when we are agreeing.
16
17 Wasn’t the last meeting good. The paper & dis-cussion both so
18interesting.
