For a $p$-adic field $F$ of characteristic zero, the embeddings of a tame supercuspidal representation $\pi$ of $G= \textrm {GL}_n (F)$ in the space of smooth functions on the set of symmetric matrices in $G$ are determined. It is shown that the space of such embeddings is nonzero precisely when $-1$ is in the kernel of $\pi$ and, in this case, this space has dimension four. In addition, the space of $H$-invariant linear forms on the space of $\pi$ is determined whenever $H$ is an orthogonal group in $n$ variables contained in $G$.
