TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir Michael Foster, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date21 December 1901
DescriptionReceived Foster's telegram of the previous day. Received the enclosed note from the President [William Huggins, not enclosed].

This morning Harrison received the enclosed acknowledgement from Mr Ritchie [not enclosed] and a letter marked 'immediate' from Sir Edward Maunde Thompson, of which he encloses a copy [not enclosed]. There seems some doubt whether the new Institution being self-constituted, is sufficiently established to be recognized by the International Association until it has a more formal organization than appears in Thompson's letter. Awaits Foster's instructions in the matter.

Also encloses a letter from Herdman with Harrison's note upon it [not enclosed].
