TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr Dukinfield Henry Scott, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date18 April 1902
DescriptionThe usual invitations for members of the Kew establishment were sent out a few days ago in one envelope. James finds the assistant addressed the envelope to 'The Secretary', instead of the Director. The list is sanctioned by the Soiree Committee, upon recommendations sent in by the Director. The only point that has now arisen is whether the Assistant for India is on the Scientific Staff or on the Office staff. Perhaps Scott could let them know.
