TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Dr S Monckton Copeman FRS, Local Government Board, Whitehall, SW
Date13 May 1910
Description'Dear Dr Copeman,
In reply to your letter of yesterday I have to inform you that the Soiree fixed for the 25th inst has been postponed, and it seems probably that the precedent of 1901 will be followed and that no Soirees at all will be held this year.
The abandonment of the May Soiree was duly advertised in the daily press, but it seems to have escaped general attention.'
