How people used to ask for a date

Oct 5, 1913

My dear Miss Leon

What sayest thou to spending this beautiful Sunday afternoon in the company of yours truly? If agreeable to you let me know, through the bearer at what hour it will be most convenient for you, for me to call.

Trusting this meets with your approval. I am

Most cordially,

Ben
