TitleCopy Letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to J A Parsons, The Lodge, Wellington College, Berkshire
Date21 May 1908
Description'Dear Sir,
In reply to your enquiry about the recent Soiree, the explanation of Dr Pollock's not receiving an invitation is that the Invitation Committee this year were obliged to make some rather drastic reductions in the invitation list, on account of the crowded state of the rooms on these occasions, and among others they left out this time the category of head masters. I will however, call their attention at their next meeting to the fact that their omission was felt, at any rate, in some quarters.'
