TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to A C Egerton
Date13 November 1908
I regret exceedingly that you should have been troubled with a letter directed to the late Sir Alfred Egerton. The mistake arose from a confusion in the Office owing to our previous practice of addressing invitations intended for the Duke of Connaught of Sir Alfred Egerton. Please accept my sincere apologies.'
