TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to W Roberts, 47 Lansdowne Gardens, Clapham, S.W.
Date25 November 1902
DescriptionThe portrait of Harvey at the Society hangs in bad light. Roberts could see it best on a fine day. The Society's catalogue says it is by De Reyn, and presented by Mappletorf, which may be a miss-spelling for Mapletoft, who was a fellow of the Society about 1680. Will be happy to let Roberts see the portrait.
