TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Sir Oliver Lodge FRS
Date18 April 1912
Description'I must apologise for the delay in replying to your note of the 12th. I was out of town when it arrived and only returned on Tuesday.
No photographer is official authorised to ask for sitting for a group portrait of Fellows. Several have written here asked for such authority, but the have all been told that nothing of the kind can be arranged until the plans for the celebrations in July are matured. We cannot prevent from taking steps to try and secure this business on their own account, but they have no right to quote authority from here for approaching the Fellows.'
