TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Messrs Robarts, Lubbock & Company, 15 Lombard Street, E.C.
Date18 May 1896
In going through the pass-book I find entered on the 25th March last, among the annual subscriptions to the Society, the receipt of a sum of £3 from a "Dr Turner". There is no Fellow of this Society with that name, and I should be much obliged if you could trace the authority for entering that name as there is evidently a mistake about it. The nearest name likely to have been misread as "Turner" that I can find is that of Dr Henry Timen, whose subscription is unaccounted for except on the hypothesis that it has been credited to the name of "Turner".
I am, yours faithfully,
Robt Harrison
Asst. Sec. RS. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
