TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor William Chandler Roberts-Austen, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date3 March 1897
DescriptionAs another Committee comprising several members of the Soiree Sub-Committee, has been fixed for the afternoon of Thursday the 11th, Dr [Michael] Foster has asked Harrison to suggest to Roberts-Austen whether they might postpone the Soiree Sub-Committee for a few days. As the Soirees have been fixed for so late a date, a short postponement will not much matter.

The Treasurer [John Evans] has asked Harrison to say that he has bought carpets for the Tea Room downstairs and will be glad to know that they meet with Roberts-Austen's approval, as a member of the Tea Room Committee.
