TitleCopy Letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Messrs Wilson & Gray, 106 Mount Street, W
Date25 May 1908
I am obliged by your letter of May 23, but it is not at all likely that the Royal Society would entertain the idea of acquiring premises in London, badly off as we are for room, because the premises we occupy are held under a grant from the Crown, and the Society has no funds that would enable it to pay rent.'
