TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Francis Fox
Date18 May 1908
DescriptionHarrison is sorry to have been prevented by his sentry duties from hearing Fox's lecture but thinks it probably the Committee will ask him to repeat it at the Ladies' Soiree. The Ladies Soiree has been fixed for June and they will be certain about the date in a few days time. Harrison asks whether Fox would like to come first, the middle position is generally regarded as best but there is never any problem filling the room.
