TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir William Huggins, President of the Royal Society
Date22 March 1904
DescriptionHarrison has received Huggin's copy of the letter he had written to Dr Waller.

He also discusses the"At Home" events, which are customarily held at the end of March, and notes that due to the early Easter this year and the alteration of Council meetings to accomodate the new dates in the selection of candidates, that would be impractical. Harrison believes the proximity of 28 April to the Soirée on 13 May makes it unsuitable, but if Huggins wishes it to be held he must inform him to allow Harrison to send the cards immediately.
