TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir William Ramsay, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date22 November 1904
DescriptionHas received his letter enclosing a cheque for £4 for dinner tickets for himself and two friends. Unfortunately, Harrison has no power to issue more than one guest;s ticket to a Fellow, excepting the members of the Soiree Committee, who may invite two. It is difficult to make exceptions, but if he could find a Fellow planning to dine without a guest, then he could take over the introduction of one of Ramsay's guests. The amount should in strictness be £4-1-0.
