|Title||Copy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to the Secretary, College of Preceptors, Bloomsbury Square, W.C.|
|Date||18 May 1896|
Your card of invitation for your Jubilee Dinner addressed to Lord Kelvin as President of this Society has been received here, and, before sending it on to him, I think you may like to know that Lord Kelvin has been succeeded in the Presidency of the Society by Sir Joseph Lister, and in the circumstances ^you^ may wish to change the form of the invitation. If, however, you intend it for Lord Kelvin personally, I will send it on to him on hearing from you.
I am, yours faithfully,
Asst. Sec. RS. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
