TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir Joseph Dalton Hooker, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date3 May 1897
DescriptionIn going over the pass-book Harrison finds the Society credited with £3 on account of the Reverend W Colenso, as if Colenso had given his bankers an order to pay his subscription. Harrison also finds by the receipt book received from Hooker on the 5th March, a cheque for £3 on this gentleman's account.

Wonders if Hooker can throw light on the apparent duplication of payment.
