TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Lady Prestwich, Durent-Holme, Shoreham, Sevenoaks
Date3 January 1899
DescriptionReferring to Prestwich's letter forwarding a donation to the Evans Portrait Fund and to Harrison's note of the 22 December, it has been decided that contributions to the Fund are to be restricted to Fellows of the Royal Society. Therefore returns the cheque which Prestwich was so good as to send, though it would seem fitting that the name of 'Prestwich' should appear as a supporter of the project.
