TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor John Cox
Date12 July 1912
DescriptionThe President regrets that, owing to the extreme demand upon the space at the table, it has not been found practicable to include his name among those invited to the dinner on Tuesday evening. But invitations are being sent to him for the At Home on Monday evening, the Abbey service, the Duchess of Northumberland's garden party and the Conversazione. The President would like to say how sorry he is that this misunderstanding on the part of the Royal Society of Canada could not have been cleared up sooner. But he is strongly under the impression they were informed that they could only send one delegate.
