TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to W H St John Hope, Society of Antiquaries
Date24 March 1904
DescriptionHarrison explains that the meeting of the International Association of Academies, of which the Royal Society is that year's Directing Academy, will be at Whitsuntide, beginning 25 May. The Society can provide accommodation for the meetings of the full Assembly but not the Sectional Committees, and so he asks if the Society of Antiquaries might volunteer to host some of the meetings. If Hope agrees, he asks that he inform him whether a formal application is needed, or whether this letter is sufficient.

A manuscript annotation notes that this letter was also sent to B Daydon Jackson, W H Wesley, S E Carr and L L Belinfante.
