It reads, "Why don't you leave suburbia for once – come and see me – either here – or at the Cape next week or in Boston the 19th,"

I know it is unwise, irrational, and that you may hate it – on the other hand you may not – and I will love it." 

"You say that it is good for me not to get what I want. After all of these years – you should give me a more loving answer than that. Why don't you just say yes?"
