TitleCopy letter from C R [Charles Richard] Weld, the Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society; to Lord Rosse [William Parsons, President of the Royal Society]
Date3 February 1849
DescriptionInforms that having met with the Senate of the University of London, confirms none of the dates listed for the soirees will interfere with the Senate. States that the proposed date changes have nothing to do with the Royal Society, however, suggests Saturday 16 June rather than the 2nd. This is because the election of new Fellows will take place on the 7 June, and new Fellows may be able to attend the soiree on the 16th. Suggests keeping a book to record the invitees, the majority of which will be Fellows of the Royal Society, this should be drawn up 5-6 weeks before the invitations are sent out.
