TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir Westby Percival
Date28 November 1898
DescriptionIn reply to Percival's letter of the 26th, Harrison is directed by the Dinner Committee of the Society to say that they were unaware Percival no longer represented the Colony of Tasmania as Agent General, but trust that Percival will not allow that fact to prevent him from availing himself of the President's invitation, especially as his successor is not yet in the country.
