Dear Jettie

I have time for just a wee note for I want if possible to get this to you on the morning mail. I didn't write to you before because I have been sick in bed or on the bed one or the other for three days. (with a frightful cold Yesterday I couldn't go out of the house, but was so dreadfully busy sewing that I could not get time to write. Oh my I am taking up a whole page with excuses. I suddenly realized this morning that you will probably be meeting me at the train tomorrow.Mother wants to give a little dinner to Catherine and Mr Milestomorrow as Father will be away then so I am not going to Baltimore until Friday. I am so sorry I cant spend several days with you dear. I shall send you a postal with the time of my arrival in Baltimore on it. Of course you can't meet me if you have five classes tomorrow Friday.
Don't worry about that. Oh dear it is ringing four and I am sure there is a train soon. I seem to be distractedly hurried the last few days in everything I do.
Goodby darling.

Affectionately,
M.
