TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to A ]Alfred] B [Bray] Kempe, Treas RS
Date19 July 1911
DescriptionOn reflection Harrison has come to the conclusion that it would be better to defer laying down the new floor cloth in the Library until shortly before the celebrations next year; Harrison therefore proposes putting down the old carpet again for the coming winter and Sir Joseph Larmor agrees.
Harrison now has all the charges for the Coronation decorations and illuminations and encloses them [no enclosure]. Harrison details how much each Burlington House Society paid towards to the decorations.
