Dear Mr Hart

In response to your note of last Friday, inquiring the name of the lady I introduced you to at the [[underlined]] Grolier [[/underlined]] that afternoon, I am somewhat at a loss to know [[underlined]] which [[/underlined]] of the [[underlined]] two [[/underlined]] ladies you mean.  The one you conversed with, who spoke of Mr and Mrs Bement is my cousin Mrs. F. B. Mathewson of "The Martinique" 54 West 33d St. this city.  The other lady is Miss Ethel Sanborn, a very dear friend of Mrs. Mathewson. As both are "attractive" to use your own expression perhaps you will tell me which one you meant.
