A delivery boy handed her a letter addressed to Mrs. Edward Malcolm. Laura knew her mother was in no condition to handle whatever message lay within the envelope. So she opened the letter, which was written in a bold, masculine script.
I received word last night of your husband’s death. I feel deeply saddened by this news. Your husband was a good friend of my father’s. My father also passed away several months ago, so I will come in person from New York to discuss some business they had between them. Please inform me of a time that would be convenient.
