|Title||Copy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir William Huggins, Fellow of the Royal Society|
|Date||7 October 1903|
|Description||Telegraphed this morning in answer to Huggins' note in order to reassure Huggins about his letter to Sir Clements Markham, which was posted the previous afternoon. |
Sends the revised draft letter to Captain [Robert Falcon] Scott, containing Markham's paragraph, for Huggins to sign. The Treasurer [Alfred Bray Kempe] thinks it would be desirable and courteous to send a copy of the letter to the Admiralty for information, and suggests Huggins might write a short covering letter to Markham, in sending him the draft for signature, telling him that he proposes sending Admiralty a copy. If Huggins is not calling at the Society the next day, Harrison asks him to send back the signed letter, with any covering letter he thinks fit to write.
