TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to E Robbins, The Press Association Limited, 14 New Bridge Street, E.C.
Date12 November 1906
DescriptionHas Robbins' letter of 10 November, which he will lay before the Dinner Committee of the Society. Thinks it is only fair to tell Robbins that the Society is very slow to change its traditional practice as described to Robbins in his last letter, and it does not seek publicity 'in the way which is so common nowadays'.
