TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr Charles Chree, Kew Observatory, Richmond, Surrey
Date7 December 1896
DescriptionIn reply to Chree's letter of the 5th, Harrrison is in no better position than Chree with regard to a knowledge of the members of the Committee for the International Physical Laboratory, except that he knows the names of those nominated by his Council to serve upon it.

Harrison will endeavour to obtain the names for his own information as well as Chree's and will then give instructions to the printers to supply him with a sufficient number of copies of the description of the Kew Observatory to distribute them.
