TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir William Huggins, President, Royal Society
Date12 November 1903
DescriptionHas been to the Italian Embassy and although the Secretary of Legation is going to lay the matter before the Ambassador personally, it appears almost hopeless to expect the King of Italy to receive an address in London on Thursday. Thinks the only thing to do, since neither Sir Michael [Foster] nor Professor [Joseph] Larmor can go to Windsor, is to send an address down to Windsor without having a deputation. If further intelligence from the Embassy makes a change in this decision, Harrison will send a telegram.
