He is grateful for 'the Council's very kind invitation to become a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts', and would have been happy to accept, except that he is 'intending to move from London into the country at a fairly early date', and 'would, therefore, be unable to take advantages [sic] of this Fellowship'. He hopes the Society will 'appreciate the reasons for my reducing rather than increasing my ties in London'. NOTE: 1p., landscape 12mo. Addressed to 'Mr. Samson', Assistant Secretary. He will be 'pleased to take the Chair at the meeting of the Society on Wednesday, March 9th when Sir George Haynes is reading his paper.'
