TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Messrs Lafayette Ltd
Date5 December 1911
Description'I have to acknowledge your letter of yesterday relating to your proposal to photograph persons attending the Society's celebrations next year, and will lay it before the President of the Society.
It might be advantageous to know in the meantime what procedure you you would propose to adopt for making the portraits should the suggestion prove acceptable. The whole of the celebrations, as at present contemplated, would be limited to one week, in the course of which the time of the delegates would be pretty fully occupied.'
