How do I deal with cancellation in my brief long distance relationship?

I had plans for New Years Eve with a guy I met online and have just started dating. Last night he sent me an e-mail which states in pertinent part:

My sister called last night and invited me to spend New years wknd with her and her family. She moved last year and I haven't seen her for since last Christmas. I'd like to go but I don't feel like we have been dating long enough to take you yet. What do you think? If we don't go to XXXX that weekend would you want to go sometime in Jan or Feb?

I obviously don't want to spend time with someone who'd rather be somewhere else. My impulse is to not respond at all, but I don't want to appear immature or bitter due to personal pride.

What should I do/not do in this situation? Thanks!
