TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to William Turner Thiselton-Dyer, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date10 June 1897
DescriptionThe Secretaries have the idea of inserting a note in Monday's 'The Times' to the effect that they understand that in view of the near approach of Her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee, full academic and official dress will generally be worn at the Conversazione of the Royal Society on the 16th instance. The Secretaries ask Dyer if they are in a position to make a general suggestion as to official dress. Professor Roberts-Austen, Chairman of the Soireé Committee, approves of the paragraph.
