My own darling

I have been exceedingly inconvenienced this morning by a very natural mistake of Mrs. Hightmans; she has shut the top of your desk and I can't get in! Will you please send me the key by the very first mail? I could have sworn that the duplicate key was in the basket on my bureau but it has disappeared. Could you have taken it?I have spent half the morning ransacking the house for it, and now I have engagements with Mr. Thompson and others which makes it impossible for mye to write a real letter to my darling,—since this must go on the first mail. I enclose a card which the bearer wanted me to send you.— why I don't know. He came from New York to see you.

The weather is still superb. All well. Father very cheerful.

With love unspeakable.

Your little wife, Eileen
