Near fine. Gracious note to a friend, reading in part: ".I feel very much ashamed of myself not to have thanked you long ago for your kindness to forward my tubs, & I have no excuse whatever for such bad behavior! Your kind letter of Aug. 3 reached me yesterday and it gave me much pleasure to get these lines from you and to hear that you are back & enjoying your summer. I wish I could have joined you at your picnic by the lake; how often I think of those lovely pone-lilies & wish I could paddle in the 'outlet.'. Count Lewenhaupt [her son] joins me with kind remembrances to yourself and husband." Handsomely penned in black ink on high quality lettersheet featuring an embossed crown insignia.
