"My dear Mrs. Laughton
I am exceeding sorry that I could not attend the Charity ball at Philadelphia, the pleasant features of which were so seductively set forth in your note. But you, who know something of White House duties and labors, can appreciate better than many others, their exacting /
nature and the obstacle they present to an indulgence in recreation such as you kindly proposed.
Yours sincerely - Grover Cleveland"
