TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to George James Burch, [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date14 November 1902
DescriptionThanks Burch for his note. The announcement Burch enclosed about the medals is certainly an unauthorized one, because the official announcement cannot be made public until the awards of the Royal Medals have received the King's approval. Official announcement was sent to the papers yesterday and appears in this mornings 'Times'. It seems impossible to prevent the leakage of news in an unauthorized form of matters decided in Council. In the office all these matters are treated as absolutely confidential.
