TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor George Downing Liveing, Fellow of the Royal Society, Newnham, Cambridge
Date24 July 1903
DescriptionEncloses for information a letter received from Monsieur [Pierre] Curie and one from Dr Thorpe, to whom, as the signatory of the letter to Curie, Harrison sent the latter's letter and asked for instructions as to dealing with the matter. As Harrison shall probably be away when the radium arrives, he proposes to leave instructions at the Society that is should be sent at once to Liveing, as the apportionment of a valuable consignment of this character is hardly a thing that can be done from the Society's office.
