TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor [Francis Wall] Oliver, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date22 November 1906
DescriptionRegarding the postscript to his letter of Sunday, the simplest way of brining a second guest is to ask another Fellow to adopt his guest the extra visitor Oliver wishes to bring. The group would then be placed together at the dinner table. Dr Dukinfield Henry Scott, Harold Wager, Lieutenant Colonel Prain and Professor [John Bretland] Farmer, have all sent in their names without guests.
