With pleasant memories of my stay with the charming hostess of this [...] hospitable home, and with the hope that our acquaintance so happily begun may open into a life long friendship.

[Writing in another language]
"Friendship among selfish people is great in the beginning but diminishes gradually. Among the unselfish it takes the opposite course. The former is like our shadow in the forenoon: the latter like our shadow in the afternoon"
[Viveland R. Gandle?] May 26, 1898 Bombay, India
