In an article in the Philatelic Journal Of Great Britain [Vol. 87, No. 4, December 1977] Robson Lowe illustrates a similar card inscribed "H. P. King Esq.".

On the reverse of this card is "Admission card to South Kensington Museum commemorating the Jubilee of Uniform Penny Postage Jan. 10 1890" which Robson Lowe states is "presumably written by Mr. King."

In a recent article of the Gibbons Stamp Monthly, Derek Connell again places this as the dinner seating card. A puzzle yet to be definitvely 'solved'.
