feel very pleased & honoured if you would come over some day & have lunch with my husband & me during your stay here. We seem to know you already through having your photograph taken last year with Mr. Carnegie and my Brother-in-law & as Dunbar Manse is the home of my sister, it does seem as if we ought to knoweach other. At the same time I hesitate to ask you to add to your numberless friends when you have come here to rest. If you do not feel equal to coming over here to see us perhaps you would telephone.With kind regardsBelieve meYours very trulyHelen F. Davidson
