Return calls.
I.

First calls should be returned as early as practica-
ble. Thirty days is very ample time for this import-
ant courtesy.

Ii.

In case illness, excessive occupation, or other just
cause renders it impossible or very difficult to return
a call in person within the proper time, a card or note
of friendship and regret may be sent by post or mes-
senger. This will continue the acquaintance until a
call in person can be made, or an invitation to a re-
ception or other entertainment given.
