Dear Sir

I sincerely hope that the tardiness of my reply to your letter of Dec 28th will not have been construed into want of interest in or sympathy with the movement [p. 2] you are organizing..

I shall esteem it an honor to be associated in any way with it, and I beg you will dispose of my services which I freely place at your [p. 3] disposal, in any way which may in your opinion best serve the cause.

Yours very truly

Alfred Gilbert

W Christian Symons Esqr.
