TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir George Baden-Powell, Cliffe Side, Grove Road, Bournemouth
Date4 January 1898
DescriptionBaden-Powell's letter to Professor [Arthur William] Rucker has come into Harrison's hands due to Rucker's absence. Baden-Powell's paper in the 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]' on the late eclipse was published on 11th December and private copies ought to have been in Baden-Powell's hands long before now. They may have been sent to Baden-Powell's London address and not forwarded. Asks to know if they have not been received. Professor Turner has gone to India to observe the eclipse.
