Summary:
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 action to recover the dinner or an equitable part of it.
