2, EATON GARDENS,
28 April 1889.
I shall have much pleasure in accepting the Committee's pleasant proposition that I should return thanks for the toast of "Literature", at the forthcoming Whistler Banquet.
I trust I may be excused for suggesting that the toast may come somewhat early in the list, [p. 2] as I have another engagement that evening which I should like to fulfil.
