Mr. B. Grant Taylor,

Dear Mr. Taylor:

I thank you very much for your kind and flattering invitation to the blossom festival the 18th inst., which I would gladly accept if I could. But the work on my hands will make any excursions at this time, however delightful, impossible.

With best wishes and congratulations on your state road, I am

Faithfully yours,
