TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Monsieur le Professeur Eleuthere Elie Nicolas Mascart, Foreign Member, Royal Society
Date2 November 1896
DescriptionMr R H Scott has asked Harrison to write to Mascart with any news he has of Lord Kelvin [William Thomson]. A much exaggerated paragraph appeared in the evening newspapers on Saturday about Kelvin's illness, but Harrison saw Kelvin at the Society on Saturday, and he visited again today and said that, although he has been suffering lately with acute neuralgia, it is getting better and he is to all appearance in very good general health.
