TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir Edwin Ray Lankester, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date28 November 1907
DescriptionHarrison notes receipt of Lankester's note, and expresses incomprehension that the notices of the annual dinner and meeting, sent to all Fellows of the Royal Society, should have failed to reach him. Care was taken in this process and checks made, but his name came in just in time to secure a vacant place at the table before the plan was printed. He encloses duplicates of the notices sent out on 4 November.
