TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Messrs Maull & Fox
Date25 May 1897
DescriptionHarrison is sorry to have left the Messrs letter of the 6th May so long unanswered. Harrison thanks the Messrs for the 13 photographs of Fellows sent for the Society's album. These will be duly acknowledged in the Year-book.

Harrison can see no objection to the Messrs informing the Fellows who have not already been photographed of the Messrs willingness to take sittings, and Harrison understands that a List of Fellows has been furnished to the Messrs to facilitate such communications.

Harrison finds the Society's album is very nearly full and would be glad to have the price for a suitable album which might be stamped, as their first was, with the inscription 'Portraits of Fellows of the Royal Society'.
