3 Dear Mr Pearson
5 Thank you for your letter. I am not able to answer it because I have
6to fight against everything that makes me think or feel. If my
7friendship is of any value to you please know you have it. We are
8always wanting to make life bright & beautiful to others, & yet we
9unreadable who want it so can’t help paining each other. Please know
10when you come on Monday evening you are coming to a friend. I do not
11believe that story of about Miss Müller, she would not have been so
12unloyal to another woman. I will not be there on Sunday, she has not
13asked me. I hope I did not make you feel unhappy the other night.
