TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr A W Ward
Date11 July 1912
DescriptionHarrison has been making enquiries at the Lord Chamberlain's Office and he thinks the explanation of the ticket that has been sent to Ward for the Windsor garden party is that it was made out for him independently in his capacity as President of the British Academy, before his name was reached on the list of delegates to the Royal Society's 250th Anniversary celebrations. Sir Archibald Geikie thinks it would be quite safe for him to take Miss Ward with the card that has been sent for him.
