TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Francis Fox
Date28 May 1909
Description'Dear Mr Fox,
Sir Archibald Geikie has handed on to me your letter of the 22nd to him to deal with.
I did propose to the Soiree Committee a repetition of your Pitch-blende exhibit for the Ladies' Soiree, but the Committee, being rather afraid of a crown this time in connection with the Darwin celebrations, deliberately decided that we could not give space for it and I cannot go behind that. We have at the Ladies' Soiree three rooms less available for exhibits than in May.'
