TitleCopy letter from Robert Frederick William Harrison, to Professor William Palmer Wynne, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date10 November 1905
DescriptionHas Wynne's letter and cheque and trusts he has by now received the cards for the dinner. Is sorry Wynne was not satisfied with his seat at last year's Dinner. Will put Wynne's letter before the Table Committee and point out to them that he would prefer to be seated nearer the middle of the room. The arrangement of the tables is never begun until after the date prescribed in the circular and no attention is paid then to the order in which names have been sent in before that date, but all those names are given precedence over those received later.
