TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Leonard Huxley, The Charterhouse, Godalming
Date6 February 1900
DescriptionIn reply to Huxley's letter of the 29th January, they have made some search at the Society but Harrison has not been able to find the precise information regarding the 'Challenger' Expedition. Has therefore written to Sir John Murray.

The amount raised for the Fee Reduction Fund appears to have been £10,666.5.0. altogether, but the subscription list, which was opened in 1878, was not closed until 1880, and the whole of the amount was not raised by subscription among the Fellows.
