The letter is addressed to BR's private secretary and is from the private secretary of the Ceylon High Commissioner.
The private secretary asks if BR and Countess Russell will be attending a formal dinner in honour of the Prime Minister of Ceylon. The Acting High Commissioner, V.L.B. Mendis, had met with BR on the morning of 11 June 1964 and at that time extended an invitation for the formal dinner. The formal dinner is to take place 16 July 1964.
As a Commonwealth country, Ceylon had a High Commission in the UK, not an embassy.
