Dear Mr Symons
I herewith send you a cheque for my dinner ticket. With regard to suggesting invitations, Most of my friends who are also sympathetic with the object [p. 2] for which the dinner is to be given, are I believe already engaged to it. If I might suggest, I should say that the foreign artists resident in London should be asked, if indeed they are not already [well?] represented.
