TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir John Evans, Treasurer, Royal Society
Date29 May 1897
DescriptionDr Kanthack has written to Mr Rix for some money, £60, out of the Tsetse Fly grant, and Mr Rix has handed the application to Harrison. Harrison has therefore drawn a cheque, which he encloses for Evans' signature, and shall be much obliged if Evans will return this to him.

Asks how this grant from Mr Beit is to be treated. Wonders if it should be carried into the Donation Fund. Harrison thinks this would be the simplest method, if Evans agrees. It does not seem worth while to open a separate ledger account for it.
