TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Horace K Pope, 7 Gloucester Square, Southampton
Date15 May 1908
Description'Dear Sir,
I must beg you to excuse my delay in reply to your letter of the 11th instant on the grounds of the disturbance of all our usual arrangement by the Soiree which was held here this week. I have consulted one of the Principal Secretaries on the subject of the Sarenstone you mention, but he thinks that it is not a subject on which we could give you an opinion here, but it rather one for the Society of Antiquaries. I am therefore sending on your letter to that Society and asking them to communicate with you direct.'
