"My Dear Redgrave, I am sorry at the thought of being absentee at the first etching club meeting of the season but I am engaged on Thursday night at 7 and I fear cannot hope to be at leisure in time to come in later - I trust that you will have a merry meeting however and that you will give my kind rememberences to all the members. Yours ever truly, William Holman Hunt."
