Dear Miss Bates
I believe there is something in the accumulated wisdom of the world about better late than never, but [this must seem?] that it always [is awful?]. It's a long time, in one way of looking at it, since Christmas, and your [remembrance?], along with your brother's able poem (I have told you before he is an able poet) should have been acknowledged long before this. Many thanks, all the same, - I am  [?] your [?] and hope sincerely that [?] is not suffering. Does his condition alter your plans from going abroad together?
Yours always sincerely
