TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Francis Darwin, Foreign Secretary, Royal Society
Date12 November 1907
DescriptionHarrison explains that the date for which Darwin has a preference for the meeting of the Indian Government Advisory Committee, 29 November, falls on the day before the Royal Society's Anniversary, and so the office would appreciate it if Darwin would be happy to go with his other suggestion of the 2 December. If it is inconvenient for Darwin, they would be able to manage on 29 November.

He is having the memorandum printed, and supposes 3pm would be a suitable hour for the meeting.
