Dear Mr. Hunter,
I hope you will have a good hour [unclear] and a good time tonight.
I have been kept [unclear] so closely any friend[unclear] that I have not attended to your business with Blaham [unclear] yet, shall try to see him today.
Did you intend to pass any of your grade had you continued with us? About when would you suggest to begin them in arithmetic?
Regards to Mrs. H and the children.
