Dear Mr. Manson
 Thank you so much for your surprising & pleasing news – I didn’t know the London Group had had its January meeting – I am so very pleased that the society should have elected me as one of their members, and that they should think my work worth it. Believe me yours sincerely
 Sylvia Gosse
