TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Dr E J Allen
Date12 June 1911
Description'Replying to your letter of Saturday, I am very sorry to say that our meeting room is engaged on the afternoon of the 28th, the President having promised the room to the Geological Society for Professor Penck's lectures. We could probably find you another room for your Council meeting, but that by itself would, I fear, not be enough for you. Could you get accommodation at the Linnean? If not, I have no doubt I could get it for you at one of the other Societies in Burlington House. I think there will be no difficulty in accommodating your auditors on the 26th.'
