My father is a teacher of mathematics, and my mother is a doctor. We are very grateful indeed to you for consenting to come and stay with us. In case, however, it has gone astray, I am enclosing a carbon copy. Could you possibly write and tell me what your plans for this summer are ?
This would be practice for us, and if I make any mistakes, I hope you will correct them for me. You will be pleased to hear that in your letter you did not make any mistakes at all. There are many trees, lawns and gardens around our house. I spent the first two weeks at home at my native place. We should be happy to have you with us for the weekend following the Seminar. We are looking forward to seeing you and do hope that you can come. My husband wishes me to give you his regards and to thank you for extending your invitation to him as well. He is very sorry he does not feel up to any trip yet. Many thanks and best regards to you all from all of us here.

Cramer, I am very sorry for the delay in answering your recent letter with its generous offer of hospitality. The only trouble is that our plans cannot be made to the exact day.
I am sorry that I have to hurry this trip, but commitments in Moscow make this necessary. We have both a great deal of news to tell you when we meet. Charlson, Thank you for your kind invitation for dinner on Saturday the fifteenth of October.
I am certainly looking forward to seeing you again and to visiting your office. I'm very sorry, but I cannot accept it as I am leaving for London tomorrow morning. Unfortunately, my husband is in bed with a severe chill, and the doctor forbids him to get up for a week. It has been several weeks since we have communicated, and I just wanted to drop you a brief note.
Under these circumstances, we shall not be able to be with you on Saturday. John, do you still wish me to come to the USA this summer?
I shall send you a fax or a telegram telling you of the exact time of arrival as soon as I know it. London is a city I have heard so much about, and I am delighted at the chance to see it. Clifford, Many thanks for your kind letter of welcome. Stevenson, I hope you will excuse me for writing to you — an utter stranger as I am. It is this invitation that I want to discuss with you.
Apart from my schoolwork, my chief interests are volleyball and photography. We are looking forward to offering you hospitality in return for the hospitality you have kindly given us on many occasions. I hope you will find the dates suggested convenient. I shall do my best to call on you at a time you could receive me without upsetting your own time-table. But both of you must promise that you will let me melt into the household as much as I may without presumption.
When you write, don't forget to tell me what your hobbies are. I am taking eight subjects in all, but my favorite ones are chemistry and Russian. We want you to understand that we will see to all your needs while you are with us and to any expenses that may arise. Needless to say, we are looking forward very much to seeing you in January. Brown has informed me of your intention to come to our city in the summer, and this is indeed good news to me. Please let me know on what plane you will arrive and when I may expect you. If I may come on those terms, I shall consider it an honor and pleasure.
I shall be reviewing the language furiously for the next two weeks in anticipation of our arrival. Let me only ask you not to go to any trouble to arrange a special program for me. I am the mother of Victor D., a young Russian whom your son Richard very kindly invited to spend a week at your house in the summer. I explained to my son that I did not know if Richard had asked you about it or if it was just an impulsive idea out of the kindness of his heart. I am very glad that the revised dates of our visit are more convenient to you than those we originally discussed.
I shall feel much more comfortable if I do not interrupt your work. Victor is very keen on accepting, of course, but we do not want to take advantage of your kindness, if Victor's visit should put you to any inconvenience please have no hesitation in saying so. In case you did not mind I should like to assure you that we are ready to do the same for Richard. I quite realize that your schedule is tight, and we shall do our best not to interfere with your other engagements. Dear Louis, The program of my visit is becoming clearer at last. I do hope negotiations won't take up every minute of my time.
