TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to, John Brigg MP
Date16 March 1903
DescriptionThe simplest way of answering his letter is to send him the account of the appropriation of the sum of £4000, the Government Grant, annually voted by parliament for Scientific Investigations. This is fairly typical of the annual distribution of the Grant, but occasionally a heavy demand is made upon it for such purposes as Eclipse Expeditions, etc.
