TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to J H Furse, 5 Finborough Road, S.W.
Date28 May 1902
DescriptionHas been delayed by the Whitsuntide recess in showing his letter to the Treasurer. Does not suppose there will be any objection to him selling copies of the large cast of the reverse of the Hughes Medal, provided the Royal Society's ownership of the design is recognized, but it will be well to obtain formal permission of the Council. To guard against any future questions of copyright it would be well that the design in the exhibition should be shown as executed for the Royal Society.

Mr Pinches has delivered the dies and his account, but says he has left the proof of the medal with Furse, and Harrison would be obliged if he could let him have it.
