TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society; to F [Frederick] S Spiers Esq. Secretary, the Faraday Society; 10 Essex Street, WC 2
Date5 September 1919
Description[Above the typewritten date, 28 August 1919 has been handwritten, which is the date of the letter being responded to]. Advises it is not now possible to give a definite answer as to whether rooms of the Royal Society can be placed at the disposal of the Societies named by the recipient for the 15 December. The date is too far off, and the question too important to answer during the Royal Society's vacation when people are scattered. Requests the recipient applies again at the beginning of October when the matter can be properly dealt with. Advises it would facilitate matters if he can say which days and in what hours the rooms would be required, and how many people would need to be accommodated.
