Mon cher ami! Je suis arrivé hier soir. Je viens d'avoir une répétition et suis si fatigué, que je ne puis aller vous voir tout de suite. Quand permettrez vous que je dîne chez vous? Est-ce aujourd'hui ou demain? Donnez moi un petit mot de réponse. My dear friend! I arrived last night. I have just had a rehearsal and am so exhausted that I cannot come to see you immediately. When will you allow me to come and dine with you? Will it be today or tomorrow? Do let me have a brief reply.
