Dec 30t[h] 1888 -
W - Christian Symons Esq,
It is with the greatest pleasure that I accept your kind invitation to join the committee for a dinner to Mr Whistler.
There is no artist living to whom I would more readily - or as readily - show such honour & regard as I could.
I am afraid though, as I am not living in town, that I cannot take any active [p. 2] part in the arrangements:
altho' if there is anything which I can do, here, I will be very happy to do it -
Yours very truly
2. William Christian Symons
