TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to the Right Honorable James Bryce
Date20 May 1904
DescriptionHarrison believes the clerk who sent out the circulars did not make it clear to Bryce that a place has been reserved for him at the dinner on Tuesday, but the only means of checking the issue of cards to Fellows is by using them as vouchers in payment of the cost of dinner, which explains why Bryce has not yet received his. Harrison sends the card, but asks that Bryce send a cheque in return.
