Relates a parenthetical case and requests legal counsel. Received a dinner
invitation some months ago, but the note came while he was out of town and the matter
slipped his mind so that he never acknowledged the invitation. Wants to know if he is
liable for any action and if he should take steps "to prevent mischief." Also wonders if
he may bring acti on to recover the dinner or an equitable part of it.
