January 19th, 1921.

Mr. Germain Seligman,
705 Fifth Avenue,
New York City.

Dear Germain:-
   I intended to answer you dear letter of January 11th at once but, most unfortunately, I was taken very ill with the grippe and I am still in bed. I am, however, dictating this line to you to tell you how terribly sad and sorry I am that I did not see you when you were in America and also how badly I feel that you did not accept the Park Lewis's invitation to come and spend the holidays here.
   I note you say you have been detained by illness and only trust you had not had this miserable grippe. My husband, mother and I have all had it and I fear that probably you have had it too. I am just as sorry as I can be but I trust you are ever so much better.
   I only wish we could have gone to New York before the 20th so we could have seen you but as it is it has been an impossibility. However, before long I hope we shall be able to go to Europe or perhaps you will come back again and then we shall see you. I often think of you and your dear father and mother and beg of you to give them my dearest love, in which my husband and mother join me. We hope to go to Paris sometime in the near future, when, I cannot say. Until that time we shall write and please accept all our love and devotion for your good self and dear family.

Devotedly and sincerely yours,
