TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor William Dobinson Halliburton, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date5 July 1912
DescriptionSo far as can be traced, all the papers connected with the celebrations [of the Royal Society's 250th Anniversary] that have been sent to other Fellows were sent to Professor Brodie, but they were probably despatched to Canada before he was known he was in England. Hopes he does not think things are being withheld from him.

A letter came this morning from Professor Brodie with a cheque for the Government Grant, and a new set of the documents will be sent to him. Tickets for the Abbey and Syon House garden party have now come here and will be going out very shortly. The Windsor cards have not yet come.
