TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Mr William Iceton, Granard Gardens, Putney Park Lane, Roehampton, S.W.
Date14 June 1897
DescriptionHarrison is obliged for Iceton's note of the 8th and in reply notes the Society must not exceed £20 for the decorations, but he would prefer that such sacrifices as the Society must make from the scheme proposed should be in the direction of the flowering plants rather than the palms, of which the Society particularly wishes to have handsome and effective examples.

The Society has a number of important important guests and Harrison trusts Iceton will see the desirability of doing the best he can.
