about February 1853
I thought perhaps you and your friend would come in to drink wine this evening, as I asked you to do, after Vinnie got home, but I want to tell you something.
Vinnie and I are asked out this evening, and Vinnie's obliged to go. It will not be as pleasant when she is absent from home, and now I want to know if you will be busy next week, and if not, wont you save an evening, or an hour of one, when you will come and see us and taste the currant wine?
Please tell your friend - Mr Emmons, and invite him to come with you upon another evening.
Vinnie and I are sorry, but fortune is unkind.
Your Cousin Emily.
