"My dear people, I shall tell you as soon as I am able to come over: and I can say no more. How can I? I hope it will be very soon, but it cannot be immediately. I did not answer my father’s proposal by return of post, as he asked, because I hoped I should be able to give a more definite and satisfactory answer; but I cannot yet.<br/> I am so glad to hear that Janie is better. What a pitiful thing about Chalmers! The bulletin looks bad. I hope he will pull round; for he is one of the best people going."
