TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to W Wesley
Date14 May 1909
Description'Dear Mr Wesley,
I have been directed by the President to ask if the Royal Astronomical Society would be so kind as to allow the Royal Society to hold its ordinary weekly meeting on the 24th June in the rooms of your Society. The necessity of making this appeal has arisen from the fact that the date is the only one on which it have been found [practical] to arrange the Ladies' Soiree here.'
