Date15 January 1908
Description'Dear Mr. Palgrave,
I have your letter this morning. I am very sorry I cannot comply with your request, but the rule has always been very strictly observed that these informal "At Homes" are for Fellows of the Society only, and no strangers at all are ever invited. There are no exhibits, and the evening is devoted entirely to personal intercourse among the Fellows.'
