To Miss Lawrie, forwarding a prospectus for a house, with an autograph postscript, apparently responding to a proposed dinner party of only three persons: "I have undertaken, on behalf of a friend, to circulate the enclosed prospectus, in the hope of finding a purchaser, or a tenant, for the house. Would you kindly show it to any friend of yours, whom you think it might suit? / Believe me, / Sincerely yours, C. L. Dodgson. / As a general rule, I think 3 a very bad number for a Dinner-party. But was there ever a rule without an exception?".
