TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to George Abbott
Date7 May 1914
DescriptionSo much comment has been made of late by Fellows upon the crowded state of the rooms at the Soirees that Harrison has been directed to exercise strict control on the number of persons admitted as assistants to exhibitors, and on that account Harrison is constrained to ask whether if it is really necessary for him to have two assistants to aid in the exhibition of his specimens of banding in limestone. It would be appreciated by the Committee if he could arrange for one assistant.
