TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir Charles Bernard
Date12 July 1900
DescriptionIn Bernard's letter to him some time ago he said that the Indian Government would not be able to render help to the proposed Eclipse Expedition in 1901. Since then Bernard has received a memo from the Eclipse Committee [not enclosed].

Asks if by help Bernard meant financial help. By the copy of the memorandum which Harrison encloses and which Bernard need not return pnot attached], he will see that the help desired is not exactly financial. Asks if Bernard will advise them on what steps the Society should or may take.
