TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to The Right Honorable The Lord Rayleigh [John William Strutt], President of the Royal Society
Date23 November 1906
DescriptionEveryone was sorry to hear that he was unwell. Three barrels of other radio-active products have now arrived from Paris, and are awaiting his instruction. The Duke of Connaught has enquired about admission, and Harrison has responded. The Secretaries and Treasurer think that the enclosed notice might be sent to the medallists, so as to enable the business part of the meeting to go ahead without any strangers present [no enclosures]. Feels there will be a considerable demand for admission for lady visitors, and so it is tradition that no strangers are admitted to the Anniversary Meeting, except by specific permission of the President.
