TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Sir T [Thomas] Lauder Brunton Bart FRS
Date25 May 1909
Description'Dear Sir Lauder Brunton,
Concerning your kind letter of May 19 I am sure there was no annoyance here on the subject of Dr Gamgee's funeral, only regret on the part of several Fellows that we had no opportunity of arranging for a formal representation of the Society, and for letting those interested know of the ceremony. I did not know until I received your letter that the Society had been represented at all directly, and am very glad to know now that it was.'
