      For what it's worth, in 1947 C.S. Lewis wrote to T.H. White, issuing him an
      open-ended invitation to visit Oxford and meet "some admirers," probably a
      reference to the Inklings. I don't think there's a record of whether White
      responded to this, and there's certainly no record that he ever came.

      (Info from an article by Joe Christopher - hi, Joe! - on Lewis letters held
      at the Univ. of Texas, published in CSL, Nov. 1980)

      A few years earlier, Lewis had written similarly to E.R. Eddison, who not
      only came and met some of the Inklings, but had such a good time he came
      back for another visit the next year, and might have done so again had he
      not soon died.
