TitleCopy letter from Sir Michael Foster, to Sir Robert Giffen, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date30 April 1902
DescriptionFoster was hoping to see Giffen at the club or he would have written sooner. He much regrets the mistake in the Year Book, which is partly his fault as he gave instructions to treat Giffen's withdrawal as final without having seen him first.
