TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to O P Ashmore
Date7 November 1910
DescriptionThere is not likely to be much difficulty in securing admission to the afternoon meetings of the Royal Society for anyone who furnishes some assurance of a serious purpose in attending. However, there papers read here are of such a specialised nature that Harrison can only suppose that he would not care to listen to them all. The list of those to be read is announced in 'The Times' every Tuesday, and if he sends a note outlining which one he is interested in attending, Harrison can generally rely upon obtaining the necessary introduction from a Fellow.
