TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Sir Joseph [Wilson] Swan, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date13 November 1908
Description'Dear Sir Joseph Swan,
I am much obliged by your note, but since Mr Hall of the Lawes Agricultural Trust has declined the Society's invitation on the ground of his having already accepted your invitation to the Dinner, I think it will perhaps be best to let him stand as your guest if you see no objection to this course.'
