Notes:

1.  [10 January 1879]
The reply to this printed invitation card is dated 10 January 1879 (#05462) and it is assumed that Smalley replied very promptly.

2.  Mr and Mrs George Washburn Smalley
George Washburn Smalley (1833-1916), journalist and Times correspondent [more]; and Mrs G. W. Smalley, wife of the journalist.

3.  19.
Smalley had trouble reading this number, not being certain whether it read '12' or '19'. In his reply (#05462) he assumed it was the 19th the invitation was for.
