my dear michael，
i am surprised at your note just received.inever meant you to read my letter the way you did.never suggested that you were not straight in anyone of the things you suggested.i'm afraid youtook the letter all wrong.
i am very sorry if i have offended you，ormade you unhappy by that letter—and really youprobably won't believe me，but it was neverintended as such.i can't remember the letterexactly now，but am quite sure that when writingit，i didn't feel those things.as i do now，alwaysdid.you are everything to me，and surely youknow it.then why should i want to hurt you？no，you misjudge me.it was a misunderstanding，the whole thing，and i am sorry.please forget itand remember that i am always thinking of you.you are never out of my heart.i feel very sad andunhappy today since i got your note.do hope thatmy next one will cheer you，and have a differenteffect.will be more careful next time what iwrite！my letters are slow going.wrote on mondy，you should have it tuesday night.
it worries me and it is always worrying thatyou have so much to do.is there no remedy？iwish i was near you nose.come for the weekend.ah，do.this weekend.couldn't be done？how
i'd love it.ah，yes，try，try.you will come.justsend a note friday that you are coming saturday.
i wrote you，or tried to write you a nice letteryesterday.hoe it will please you and help lightenthe heavy load.
this is my morning in shop.then i go over inthe evening in such bad humor to try to wash myhair for the night，sew my long frock etc.yournote has upset it all.but i'll go to the dance.that's what you would like me to do，isn't it？butthis doesn't say i'll enjoy it.you，of course，willbe near all the time.i'll feel that i'll want to talkof you always，but it might bore other men？thatisn't the way to get partners at a ball！so i'll justhave to put my best foot forward if i want todance.had a nice little note come from you，i'd bein great form going.larry is motoring me.
