TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr John Scott Keltie, Royal Geographical Society
Date27 November 1903
DescriptionAcknowledges receipt of Keltie's letter of today enclosing a draft of a letter which it is proposed to address to Commander Scott at Lyttelton, with a copy of the covering letter addressed to Admiralty. The drafts will be laid before Council at its next meeting, but as this is not until 10 December, Harrison fears it will be impossible to return the letters with any confirmation before then and presumes this will be early enough.
