TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Dr S [Silvanus] P [Phillips] Thompson FRS
Date29 November 1911
Description'I have heard from Professor Carey Foster and he agrees that we had better have a Library Committee meeting. He says any day of the week other than Tuesday would wait before getting it fixed up officially, I should be glad if you could give me a choice of dates convenient to you, sometime early in December, say before the middle of the month - that is in the week after next. If you could give me two or three days to choose from in that week I would consult the President and get a meeting fixed.'
