TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to the Editor, 'The Times'
Date15 June 1897
DescriptionMany enquiries have been made on the subject of the Society's Conversazione on the evening of the 16th and Harrison wonders if the editor might find space to insert the accompanying paragraph regarding dress code into the next days issue of the paper. The accompanying paragraph states that in view of the near approach of Her Majesty's Commemoration, full academic dress will generally be worn at the Conversazione.
