TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to, Mrs Miers, Leckhampton House, Cambridge
Date30 March 1903
DescriptionThanks her for the two beautiful photographs of Sir George Gabriel Stokes. Sir Michael Foster says that the Royal Society should very much like to keep the photographs for reproduction. That will probably be the lighter print of the two, but the other darker photograph is such an interesting and characteristic portrait of Stokes, that they would be very glad to hang it in the building, if she can spare it.
