TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Cedric W Armstrong, 44 Finsbury Park Road, N
Date14 July 1911
Description'Your letter of May 18 has been duly considered, but I regret to have to inform you that the Council cannot see their way to giving you access to the Journals and papers of the Society. I have spent some time in endeavouring to answer the questions in your letter with reference to the Rev. Griffiths Hughes, by looking up the records, but you appear to be already in possession of all the information available. We have no record of the date either of his birth or death, and the only candidature, a copy of which I enclose. I am sorry I cannot assist you further in the matter.'
