TitleCopy letter from William Bate Hardy, Secretary of the Royal Society; to the Manager of Empress Rooms, Royal Palace Hotel; Kensington
Date25 November 1920
DescriptionReminds the Manager that at their last meeting he commented that vol au vent would be preferred over a joint of mutton [for the Anniversary Dinner]. Notes that he has since realised that this might cause problems in respect of vegetables, and if so, perhaps it would be advisable to return to the original menu of mutton.
