Date11 April 1919
DescriptionInforms Sir Joseph [John] Thomson that he has seen Sir Sidney Greville about the Prince of Wales's admission to the Society, and he has suggested a Thursday late in June. Suggests processing the election by the end of May and then sending notice of it to Sir Sidney Greville who can go on to confirm a date. Notes that Sir Greville thinks the Prince would enjoy staying to hear a paper if it were not very long, and asks Sir Thomson to think of something suitable.
