Dear Mrs Wallace
I am so sorry about the mistake in the address; if you will send me the flower tomorrow I shall be very glad; kindly send it by letter post otherwise it might not be delivered so soon.
I shall telegraph in the morning in case [] this should not reach you by the first post.
Yours truly | Alfred Parsons [signature]
