Description'Dear Sir,
I am much obliged by your letter enclosing particulars of your meeting next Thursday. I very much dear that other engagements will prevent me from attending, much as I should like to do so; but in any case I do not feel myself in any way competent to serve on your Advisory Council as I really have no special knowledge of the subject which is dealt with by your Association, although I should be glad of opportunities of extending my acquaintance with it.'
