[crest:] Photographic Society London
I have communicated your Kind note to the Council of the Photographic Society, and they learnt with great satisfaction your readiness to place at their disposal, for the exhibition to the members, of some of your earlier results. I now write to ask if you would be good enough to forward them at the June meeting (10th) when I am sure they will be very well received. I dare scarcely ask for your presence on that occasion to say a few words in connection with them, but if there is a chance of your being in town at the commencement of the summer,
I read it needs no assurance on my part to say how warmly you would be welcomed by the present generation of photographer with whom your name is a household word.
Believe me, dear Sir, Very sincerely Yours
