To "Dear Mrs Wainwright", in full: "I reached Atlantic City according to time-table and found my wife in the place where she said she'd be. So all is well. Or all would be well only for the rain. It requires some philosophy to enjoy a rained-on Atlantic City, however. My wife hopes very strongly that she will have the chance of meeting you. I've been telling her about your relation with Elinor Wylie. As for myself - I count it as a real piece of good fortune that I have been in your house and known you and Dr Wainwright. I am looking forward to seeing you again and hope that I shall be in New York when you come. Lee Keedrick will know where I am. Please give my salutations to the doctor and to your charming daughter-in-law. Your daughter, too. Very heartily hours". Ink has bled slightly at a few words of text. Otherwise, fine condition.
