Reading between the legs: Betty Commilfaux sends forgiveness

   Thorny, darling ~ 

One never did expect you, and I don't know that we'd have managed, had you come. Word, alone, of your acceptance deluged us with Extra Men, horseblankets outnumbering scarves 3:2. Long odds for a photo finish, and quite a strain on cook. It's no demerit, of course, to've given us the best of both worlds - cachet of your imprimatur, without the terror of conversation. I do hope you made some progress with Ford, remembering your promise to teach me Sylvia Tietjens on trees.
