To Lady Maria [Ponsonby]. May I come Tuesday, then at 4:30 or 5 if 4:30 is too early, I could not come today. For they make such a point of my being all the afternoon at the Fine Art and I dont know where I could get away not until 6 oclock I expect. I wish I could have been with you this morning but to stand about all day is beyond me. It is a light day that is something. I expect you will feel much better when you get to Ireland . Signed, Your affectionate K.G. (Item ID: 1551)
