TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir Richard Temple, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date25 November 1901
DescriptionReplies at once to Temple's letter regarding his guest General Norman, but cannot give a definite answer to the question as to the likelihood of Norman being asked to speak as the list of speakers is not settled until a day or two before the [Anniversary] Dinner. The list of toasts is kept down as much as possible as there is a certain number of official toasts which have to be included. Harrison will however lay Temple's note before the Dinner Committee when they meet next week.
