Dear Mrs. Hooker2
I was very sorry I could not come last night but I caught a severe cold on Saturday night, and felt so poorly that I obliged to take a hot bath and go to bed at 9 o’clock, as I was afraid I might be laid up tomorrow.
Believe me | Yours very faithfully | Alfred R. Wallace [signature]
