TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Professor E [Edward] A [Albert] Schäfer, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date13 November 1908
Description'Dear Professor Schäfer,
I have your letter and have duly noted the additions to your titles for the Year Book. I hope we shall not have any accident over it, as we had once before with one of your titles.
I think there is a good deal to be said for the idea of having the Meetings on Monday, although it would do much to spoil the unfortunate Assistant Secretary's one weekly day of rest; but I think the Conservatives in the Society would be against any change.'
