TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir William de Wiveleslie Abney, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date24 October 1901
DescriptionCaptain Creak is very anxious to obtain for Mr Bauer the editor of 'Terrestrial Magnetism' a portrait of Sir Edward Sabine for reproduction in a special number they are going to produce. Harrison does not anticipate any difficulty in getting leave of Council to have a copy of the Society's portrait and it would facilitate the matter very much if Abney could send a print of the photograph that was taken of this portrait.
