TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir Alexander Pedler, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date26 November 1907
DescriptionHarrison explains that finalising a the table plan for dinner is, as Pedlar may imagine, a complex matter. They have provisionally assumed that his guest is his son, so would not necessarily be seated next to him, and so have planned to place him at another table. Harrison seeks assurance that Pedlar would be happy with this, and states that they will try and change it if he is unhappy.
