My very dear Alice

I had resolved to give my self that great pleasure of meeting you and attending the exhibition of paintings but this P. M. I have cards from those who are coming in to day from out of Town so my whole day is gone and you see I could not in that case pass another day in pleasure when God requires so much of me and I am doing so little

Now dear you will see the need I have of sacrificing my own pleasure for the life mission before me

Will you dear do me the great pleasure to use the enclosed for a ticket for yourself to look at those paintings so you can tell me about them

As ever lovingly
M B G E

I have not read copy but the execution is excellent I hope I shall not an account of my own shortcomings have to mar the beautiful pages M B G E

Now Alice do not tuck this poor bill into my shoes or stockings or ever mention it to me but do as I say and be a darling

My Valentine

I never discovered my sweetheart till I opened the book this moment and you stood before me I think I have found it out
