TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Raphael Meldola, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date25 April 1900
DescriptionThe amount standing to the credit of the Evans Portrait Fund at the end of December was £320-14-0. A cheque for £300 in favour of Mr Cope was returned to the bankers and destroyed by them but Harrison has written for another and will send it to Cope as soon as possible.

Professor S P Thompson has never fulfilled his promise to pay £1-1-0 to the fund and this is the only outstanding promise.

Has not yet seen the formal letter from the subscribers but presumes the President will bring it to town with him next week.
