Date4 May 1908
Description'Re Lecture at Soiree, Parcel from Dr E A Wilson.
The enclosed is evidently from Prof[essor] Hickson and no doubt refers to the question of the proposed lecture at the Soiree. It is very important for us to get this question settled at once, so I shall be much obliged if you will let me have his advice and your opinion on it if possible by return of post tonight; if not, would you kindly send a telegram in the morning? There is a parcel here for you from Dr E A Wilson, which I do not send on until I hear from you.'
