Willis Hubbard to Katherine Fletcher, 1886 January 9
Your letter of Jan 6 1885. was recd Jan 7 1886. You may tell Miss D- that I do
remember. "Leap year eh," very distinctly, and I also remember how very soon I
discovered your little game. You ought not to have both written on the same kind
of wrapping paper, and
used the same expressions in each, and perhaps I would not have known that you did the thing in partnership. Perhaps it is as well that you could not go to that party, as it was a very bad night, and they did'nt have much of a time. Well as I have little knowledge of the art of composition will have to draw this to a close. Now, Miss Katie we have kept up a correspondence which has been very pleasant and agreeable, to me but for all that I think for reasons of my own it would be as well to discontinue it. What do think about it? Now dont think by this that I am mad at any
thing, for I certainly am not. Hoping to ever remain your friend.
I am sincerely yoursWillis Hubbard
Good riddance to bad rubbish.
