"MY DEAR . . . ,
Why haven't I seen you for so long a time ? I'm hoping that you have not been so foolish as to be angry with me for my bad behavior -- but that seems improbable.
From our last meeting, I have had something on my mind all the time. I have something to say to you, but I am uncertain how to do it, or if it's right to do it at all.
I have not been quite well for some days, and poor old Jupiter's kind attentions get on my nerves and almost make me angry with him. It seems impossible, but the other day he'd got a great stick ready for me, because I went off without saying anything, for a day among the mountains across the water. I'm quite certain that only my looks kept me safe from punishment !
From the time of our last meeting I have made no additions to my insects.
If it's at all possible, please come over with Jupiter. Do come. It's necessary for me to see you tonight, on very important business Take my word for it that it's very important.
