TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to The Editor of Boyle's Court Gudie
Date9 November 1911
Description'My attention has been called to an entry which has appeared now for at least two years in your Court Guide against the name of a Mr Edwin O Sacga of 5 Ulster Terrace Portland Place. I refer to the letter FRS which are printed after this time in both the alphabetical list and the streets directory. These letters are universally accepted as indicating Fellowship of the Royal Society of London; and since Mr Sachs has never been elected into the Society. I would suggest that in your next edition which is probably in course of preparation, you should correct this entry, which, as it stands, is misleading.'
