My dear Mr. Studd.
We hear you are back, but did not see you yesterday at the Champs de Mars - but we saw your picture which we all liked and wished we could have told you so. Will you come to dinner next Friday at eight o'clock? We have asked Mr Frazer and Cushing & Mrs Morgan. We do hope you will be able to.
Monsieur Arthur Studd.
