TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Conrad Beck, 68 Cornhill, EC
Date14 May 1912
Description'I am much obliged by your letter of the 10th, but as there is to be no regular Ladies Soiree this year I fear there will be no opportunity of showing the diatom you offer.
There is to be a conversazione in connection with the Anniversary celebrations in July, but the question of having exhibits then has not yet been discussed. I will, however, keep your letter forward in case of the occasion arising.'
