TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir William Huggins, President of the Royal Society
Date5 November 1901
DescriptionAcceptance by public men of invitations to the Society's [Anniversary] Dinner this year are very meagre and Sir M Foster thinks it would be desirable if Huggins, as other President's before him, write personally to such of them as he might be able to influence. Encloses a list of the principal people who have so far refused [not enclosed].

Queries if Huggins will provide a notice of his career for inclusion in the Year Book under the list of Presidents.
