TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir Clements Robert Markham, President, Royal Geographical Society
Date2 June 1899
DescriptionHas sent the Antarctic [expedition] letter for a revise in the form which he should think it would look best for presentation. Wonders if Markham thinks it rather difficult to omit Captain Fields' name after the receipt of his letter acceding to Markham's invitation to him to sign. Is writing to Lord Rosse to ask for his signature as President of the Irish Academy as it strikes him that no Irish representative has signed.
