TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr M Yeatman Woolf, Wimpole Street, W.
Date12 May 1905
DescriptionIn reply to Woolf's recent note, Harrison regrets that he has no power to issue invitations for the Royal Society Soiree. That power rests entirely with the Soiree Committee. Any supplement to that list can only be made on special grounds and on the authority of the Committee. If Woolf merely wishes to see the exhibits he could attend the press view on 17 June between 4.30 and 6pm. If he so desires Harrison can send a card.
