TitleCopy letter from Robert Harrison, to Sir John Wolfe Barry, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date23 December 1903
DescriptionHarrison states that they have been unable to find that Barry took two tickets for the Anniversary Dinner gathering. He clarifies that in neither Barry's letter of 9 November asking for tickets for himself and a guest, nor the letter of 16 November naming Canon Henson as his guest, was a cheque for the required amount of two pounds and 11 shillings enclosed. He further states that the usual signed cards were not presented at the Whitehall Rooms.

Harrison adds in manuscript a request that Barry send a cheque to close the account.
