TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to William Botting Hemsley, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date9 May 1905
DescriptionIn reply to Hemsley's note, Harrison will bring his letter to the Soiree Committee before that body when they meet on Friday. The omission of the invitations Hemsley refers to was not accidental, but was made following a resolution of the Soiree Committee as it was felt the invitations list had grown to an unmanageable dimension.
