    Dear Prof. Garton Ash,
    I have been trying to send you our (LSE IDEAS) lecture and dinner invitation for some time now.
    Could you please get in touch with me on above email so that I can send you our official invite?

    With thanks and kind regards,
    Tiha Franulovic, P.A. to Professors Cox and Westad
