In part (translated): "Dear Madame, Thank you very much for the kind information you sent, which I made sure to pass on to the young lady whose answer [I] await before I take any further steps. Please also thank your dear mother for being so kind as to offer making further efforts. I did forget to ask you not to speak with Mr. and Miss...about my idea since it was just that, my idea, and since I don’t want to bring it up with them before I know the young lady’s decision. With warm greetings for you and your family." In fine condition, with a faint strip of toning to the first page.
