"She owes you an apology and asked me to explain it, which will do next time I see you. She asked particularly how Estelle was, and would like to see you so much, I said you would be around during the summer, could not very well be away from home for the present as you were busy with the Seamstress." He states that he will be at his Brother's this evening to play cribbage with Mr. ? Sr, and that he must be going. States that on Friday the 25th, he has to attend a Millers meeting in Guelph, and will be unable to visit her. Writes about his love for her and how his happiness will be complete when "we are settled in life. But as you sometimes say, must not get too sentimental." He concludes by telling her to take good care of herself "while alone."
