Sunday Apr. 21st 89

My Dear Christian Symons,

I have sent you the paper and hope you will get it safely, I hope the dinner will be a success. [illegible] I send my guinea on at once.

Whistler also told [p. 2] me about the R. B. A.[3] what chance do you think they have of getting it.

Yours sincerely

E Aubrey Hunt.
