3rd Aug. 1883
I have the pleasure to inform you that, at the last meeting of the Directors of this Society, it was unanimously resolved that “Herr Dvorak be invited to produce an orchestral selection (Suite or Overture) during the Society’s seventy-second Season (1884).
The Concerts of that Season will take place in February, March, April and May of next year. I shall therefore be glad to be favoured by you with an early reply, stating whether you can accept this invitation of the Directors and whether it would be agreeable to you to attend the concert and conduct the performance of the work.
I am, Sir,
