Response to an invitation. In part: “The invitat’n has come here. I am so sorry to be away. The village has sold out of envelopes and paper so forgive. I write in a rainy barn surrounded by dogs & agricultural implements.” In fine condition, with light toning and show-through from writing to opposing sides.
