TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Mr James
Date12 October 1899
DescriptionThanks James for his note and sees no reason why James should curtail his holiday. All the dinner documents are well in hand and the medal claims are only waiting for one to be struck off. Things are pretty lively [at the Offices] with the N P L [National Physical Laboratory] business. The accounts are the chief thing to engage James' attention as soon as he returns.
