TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to W K Hill
Date24 March 1904
DescriptionHarrison returns Hill's circular with a couple of alterations, and highlights a phrase which he does not like, and suggests that he enhance the impression that they are asking a favour of the exhibitors as it is to go before those who have already accepted their invitation.

He encloses a list [not included] of the members of the General Assembly of the International Association of Academies, and a list of Fellows marked with those of importance who are likely to be in reach, though he does this with hesitation and he would not like it to be known that he made any selection. The names are likely to duplicate some of those in Hill's list, and he asks that it be returned as soon as Hill has finished with it.
