[Original letter returned to Miss M. Merrill] [Co. 1900]
Thank you. Miss Merrill, for your good invitation.
I will come if I may be permitted to occupy the "benmost bore" of the society room. If there be any passing to and fro between the animal and vegetable kingdoms the most likely transformation will be that of a certain Scotchman to Brassica rubrum.
Original letter dimensions unknown.
