TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to C H L Neish, The House of Lords
Date6 May 1908
Description'Dear Sir,
In reply to your letter of yesterday, the Soiree of the Royal Society on the 13th Instant is the first of the two annual receptions by the President. These have been held now for so many years, and are so well known as features of the London season, that I should have thought it unecessary to describe them. The Soiree this month is the one to which only men are invited, and the occasion is taken to exhibit a number of objects and experiments of scientific interest.'
