Letter to decline invitation (15 september 1906)
From The Arthur Conan Doyle Encyclopedia
Please express to your Council my sincere thanks for the high honour they have done me in inviting me as their guest to the Annual Dinner of the Society.
I regret however that I am compelled to decline their kind invitation, as I am not accepting any public engagements at the present time. My future movements are very uncertain.
Arthur Conan Doyle
