TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Ernest Howard Griffiths, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date21 November 1907
DescriptionHarrison explains that only Fellows of the Royal Society may attend the Anniversary meeting for the election of Council and Officers. He explains that visitors, including ladies connected with medallists, have been admitted to the presentation of medals immediately after the President's Address, which is not part of the meeting's regular business, with the technical difficulty overcome by their waiting in the tea room during the business of the meeting, and only coming into the room for the President's Address and medal presentations. He suggests that this arrangement might meet his wishes with regard to Mrs Griffiths.
