May 17, 1909.
My dear Mr. Minister:
You must think me quite lacking in manners to have been so casual about your very kind invitation to dinner the other evening. The fact is it had got mixed among a pile of my wife's notes and, she being away, it did not come to light until after you telephoned. The moment when you telephoned I was just rushing to meet an engagement and so had to send, instead of give, the answer. I am extremely sorry that another engagement made me unable to accept your very kind one and I beg you to receive my apology with these excuses for having appeared so casual.
With renewed regrets and acknowledgements, I remain, my dear Mr. Vogel,
Mr. Leo Vogel,
etc., etc., etc.,
Minister of Switzerland.
