TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr J Scott Keltie, Secretary, Royal Geographical Society
Date27 February 1899
DescriptionIn reply to Keltie's letter to Professor [Arthur William] Rucker, the action of the Council of the Royal Society in the matter of a grant in aid for an Antarctic Expedition only extends at present to a decision to ask the Government Grant Committee for a grant of £1000 in instalments. Until the Committee has considered the application it is not safe to announce that the money has been granted. Will ask Rucker if anything can be done to strengthen Keltie's appeal.
