Nora defends herself:
I knew it! I knew it! You hate me now. I am only human you know. I have weaknesses like every one else. I am open to being wooed; why should I not also be open to being won? I weakened I admit when I decided to go to his place but wouldn't you have done the same?
He was handsome. He was rich. He was attentive and considerate. That lump in his trousers was not an old pair of socks, you know.
What is a few days delay when the cause for the delay is so magnificent?
I feel so terrible for letting you down but I feel so ecstatic from a two day encounter that I had only ever dreamed of.
Would you deny me that? Would you?
Yours most sincerely,
