TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to William Carruthers, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date6 June 1899
DescriptionWill lay Carruther's note about the last Soiree before the Secretaries, who he is sure will regard it as a perfectly satisfactory explanation. The Secretaries felt bound to take note of it as there is and always has been a strong feeling in the Council that the regulation as to the invitation cards being non-transferable should be strictly enforced.
