TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr William Henry Young, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date20 November 1907
DescriptionHarrison responds to Young's card, explaining that the tickets for the Anniversary dinner are the only vouchers for the cheques received from Fellows and for the charges made by the hotel. They are obliged to retain them until the cheques have been received, as the money for the dinner does not pass through their own accounts, except as a total sum paid into the bank and then transferred to the hotel.

Meanwhile, Young's name and that of his guest have been noted as intending to dine, and tickets will be sent as soon as they have received his cheque for two pounds and 11 shillings, as indicated on the notice circulated to Fellows.
