TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to W M Webb, The Selborne Society, Hanover Square W
Date12 February 1909
Description'Dear Sir,
I am sorry I was unable to see you when you called yesterday. It is almost impossible for me to see visitors on Thursdays.
With regard to the proposed visit of Members of the Selborne Society, an evening visit would certainly be more convenient than a Saturday afternoon, but I should like to know more definitely what objects of interest here your Society wishes to see. Perhaps you could make an appointment for some day other than a Thursday, when we could discuss this matter.'
