TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr Joseph Larmor, Fellow of the Royal Society, St John's College, Cambridge
Date15 April 1897
DescriptionIn reply to Larmor's note of the previous day, Harrison understands that the whole management of the application for, and recovery of, income tax paid by the Society, was entrusted to the firm of accountants who balance the Society's books. Harrison does not have before him the method used. From his recollection he believes that exemption from income tax is only to be obtained under the Customs and Inland Revenue Act of 1885, Sub-section iii.
