I have purposely abstained from replying to the letter which you did me the honour of addressing to me some months ago, on the subject of the approaching Shakespearean Celebration, until such time as I was in a position to forward you a fuller list of our committee and communicate such particulars as might be interesting ... - You have expressed a desire to be of substantial service to the cause. There is no better way in which you can give effect to that desire, and at the same time aid in strengthening the alliance between the soil of the "Sea King's Daughter" and our own, than in endeavouring to form a local committee in Denmark in furtherance of our objects . . .
