TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to John Edward Stead, [Fellow of the Royal Society], Laboratory and Assay Office, Middlesborough
Date25 June 1903
DescriptionIn reply to Stead's letter Harrison imagines Stead refers to the International Association of Academies which met at the Society at Whitsuntide. The General Assembly of the Association is to be next Whitsuntide, but in July there is to be a meeting in connection with the proposal for an alliance of Colonial Universities, though he hardly supposes this is what Stead refers to.
