First, I must apologise for disappearing so abruptly on Friday--I do hope you don't think it was because of you. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Second, I would like to repeat my invitation for a visit. I hope you won't reject it out of hand, because there are a few things I would like to discuss with you, in addition to simply enjoying your company and wishing to catch up with you.
I'm worried about my son. He's shut me out and I don't know what to do, and he's always held you in such high regard. Perhaps he's divulged more information to you that you could share? Please, if not for me, for Terry's sake, won't you come for tea?
Hoping to hear from you,
Alice B. Walker
