TitleLetter from [Edward Albert Sharpey] Schafer, to Sir William Huggins, President of the Royal Society
Date[November 1903]
DescriptionInforms Sir William Huggins that after the Council meeting, the Secretary [Sir Michael Foster] wrote to Professor [William Dobinson] Halliburton asking him to be the new Secretary. Therefore thinks that it is not right to see the question of who will be the next Secretary as an open one - asks whether they might have a special meeting of Council to discuss this.
