I'm trying to understand the meaning of this sentence:
My best guess is "Please allow me to be late (sending?) this essay that I submitted as my thesis."
I think where I'm getting tripped up is that I sense there is a verb lacking in this sentence, and I think it might just be because I'm not understanding something that is maybe insinuated in the original Japanese? The person who wrote this sentence is asking for permission to do something late regarding this essay, and I'm not sure if I'm just mistranslating something or am not understanding something else.
