My dear Sir
I am sorry
that maldisposition
will prevent
my waiting upon
you to morrow
according to your
kind appointment
but I hope it may
not be inconvenient
to you to see me
either Wednesday
or Thursday in
next week, or
even Tuesday
should it suit you

I am vexed to be
so troublesome and
am, My dear Sir                   Truly yours


Can someone read that address? I can't.
