TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Michael Foster, Secretary, Royal Society
Date22 November 1897
DescriptionAsks Foster to attend a meeting of the Dinner Sub-Committee next Thursday at five o'clock, in order to settle the [Anniversary Dinner] table plan. Thursday is really oto late to get the table plan as it would not give time for setting up, correcting and making an index in time for the dinner. Proposes with Professor William Chandler Robert-Austen's concurrence, to get the diners provisionally placed by him, and get the type on the plan which the Committee can then consider as a draft plan.

Received Foster's notes this morning and sent proofs to Professor Halliburton.
