TitleCopy letter from unknown correspondent, to Sir William Huggins, President of the Royal Society
Date3 June 1902
DescriptionAlfred Bray Kempe informs them that Huggins has mentioned having a band at the upcoming Soiree, and they have been looking into the cost. Hopes he will hesitate before he thinks about going in for a band again, as the correspondent distinctly remembers in 1897, and the bother created trying to find a place for them, and the obstruction it caused to the cloak room arrangements. In the end, they were placed in the Hall where no one could lounge around and listen. [Letter cuts out here].
