TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir William Huggins, President, Royal Society
Date23 October 1901
DescriptionLists deceased Fellows whose obituary notices have not yet appeared in print together with the names of the Fellow who have ben asked to write notices upon them.

Assuming Huggins wishes for his address to be printed, Harrison asks if he might obtain the address complete in good time to have it set up in type so that he can have copies to distribute to the press almost immediately after the President delivers the address. This is to prevent trouble he has had in late years in this matter.
