Dear Mr Arbuthnot,
Thank you very much indeed for yours of the fifth of January. I hardly know how to respond. I certainly didn't expect such an honour and can't imagine that I deserve one; perhaps Her Majesty is favouring all of her subjects. That must be it--but I am deeply grateful.
If I may raise a point of etiquette without giving offense and because certainly records will be kept of such weighty proceedings, I would like to bring to your attention that while Mrs Foley, who signs herself in a regrettably informal manner as "mef", has been married for some years, I am actually not a Mrs; I am a Miss.
Thank you for your congratulations; I only hope that, like the American President, I can live up to an honour as yet unearned.
Adeline Gatwick-Heathrow (Miss)
