He does not believe that Bushell's election to the Society of Antiquaries has been delayed in consequence of Howorth absence 'for two or three months'. He wishes 'it were possible for you to attend a meeting of the Antiquaries, when I could introduce you to some of the principal men, who will then sign your paper & see you through'. He suggests Bushell comes to 'an interesting evening' on the coming Thursday, after dinner at his house. 'Do not dress and we shall be pleased to see you when you care to come but we shall have to dine at 7 pm at [sic] the meeting is at 8.30 & I may have to take the chair.' He ends by asking him to 'wire'.
