My dear Mrs. Dixon,
I hope upon a second
sober reflection you will
conclude to attend the
Cavalry party for a little
while this evening. Their
arrangements are superb
and I’m sure you will enjoy
it I asked Colonel Owen he
begged and implored us to
bring you he said you must
come if possible please oblige
us for this once and last occasion.

Your sincere friend.

G Granger
