There can, I am sure, be no objection to your attending the Press Views on the occassion of our conversazione. I will lay before our Soirée sub-commee [committee] at their next meeting the list of portraits which you enclose, and if they are accepted as an exhibit you will, of course, be entitled to a ticket for the Soirée.
