Your Grace:

I have yours of the 14th of March. I would like to come to the Univeristy of Virginia, but I don't think it possible to do so. I haven't had an invitation as yet, though I might be in error in that. If I have had, I have had to decline it, for my work is too heavy to take on other engagements, much as I would enjoy coming to your Jeffersonian center.

With warm regards,

Sincerely yours,
Wm H Taft
