Edsel B, Ford, Esq.,
President, Ford Motor Co.,
Detroit, Mich.

Dear Mr. Ford,

Although I called to see you twice with a letter of introduction from Mr. Robert Martin, I was very disappointed not to have had the pleasure of meeting you,

I heard, however, that you contemplated coming in to see our exhibition, but I presume that business matters prevented you from doing so. 

I trust, however, that the next time I come to your city, I should be more fortunate, and therefore, looking forward to the pleasure of meeting you on my next visit to Detroit,

Believe me to be,

Yours very truly,
