TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr Charles Chree, [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date2 July 1902
DescriptionHarrison reassures Chree that they have had advance copies of the magnetic results of the Borchgrevink Expedition struck off and sent to the Antarctic Officer, to go out to the Discovery. However the meteorological observations are in a different position. Shaw's first discussion of them went out with the Discovery a year ago, but Bernacchi's later observations, to which Shaw has written an introduction, is still in the printer's hands, and cannot be ready to be sent out with the relief ships.
