TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to J H M Furse, Northbourne Court, Deal
Date18 July 1901
DescriptionHarrison much regrets to hear that the cast of Furse's design for the reverse of the Hughes medal has been destroyed, but the responsibility rests with no one at the Royal Society. Harrison explains he sent it to an address in Finborough Road with a trustworthy man and it was marked 'Fragile, with care' and 'Sent by request of Professor Carey Foster'. The man left it with a person at that address who said it should be given to Furse.
