TitleCopy letter from Theodore E James, to Reverend Robert Paul, Free Church Manse, Dollar, N.B.
Date27 January 1900
DescriptionIn reply to Paul's letter of the 26th, James has searched the Society's records but fails to find any trace of Dr Robert Erskine, so that the description of him as F.R.S. would appear incorrect. William Erskine was a member of the first Council of the Royal Society in 1663.
