TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Mr W Iceton, Putney
Date23 May 1902
DescriptionHarrison had no intention of going anywhere else for the small decorations for the June Soiree, explaining that last year one was not held on account of the death of the Queen. Since this year is the Coronation year, and there are some special features about the Conversazione, Harrison would like them to call at an early date in order to consult on decorations.

Regarding the portrait of Sir Joseph Banks, Harrison thinks it might be very interesting and suggests Iceton brings it along to show to the Treasurer and other Fellows.
