TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Major Davis, The Reform Club
Date29 September 1903
DescriptionHas received the enclosed letter from Dr Everette [not enclosed] and thinks the best way to deal with it is to ask David to explain to him that Fellowship is attained by a system of election on the proposal of at least six Fellows, and that as only 15 Fellows are elected every year, out of an average of 80 to 100 candidates. Harrison is sending Everette an official reply but as Davis is a personal acquaintance he might be able to let Everette know somewhat more fully how his wishes may be furthered.
