TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to The Secretary, H M Office of Works
Date23 May 1912
DescriptionBy the President's express desire, and in view of the Anniversary celebrations which are expected to attract a number of strangers to the Royal Society, directions have been given to gild the letters over the door of the building [at Burlington House] to make them more distinct. It was not known that the sanction of H M Office of Works was needed beforehand, and so now Harrison begs to apply officially.
