My dear Symons

I shall be greatly pleased to add my name to the Committee, although I my professional work will not allow me the gratification of becoming an active member - I hope the Dinner will be as great a success as it ought to be -

[p. 2] I have not enclosed a formal reply to your kind invitation but I will send one if I hear from you that it is necessary

With best wishes for the New Year
Yours sincerely ever

William Anderson
