My dear Underdown -
This is most charming of you! - I am much touched by such proof of sympathy, and greatly flattered by the willingness of [p. 2] one so distinguished, to preside at this curious demonstration in approval of one so unaccustomed to it.
With my warmest thanks,
Always my dear Underdown
Most sincerely Yours

A dinner, to congratulate JW on being made an Honorary Member of the Royal Academy of Munich, was held at the Criterion in Piccadilly on 1 May 1889. Archibald Stuart-Wortley wrote to W. C. Symons on 21 March (#07133) to say that Underdown had agreed to take the chair.
The dinner was organised by W. C. Symons. JW took an active part in promoting it and deciding who should or should not be invited.
