TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Augustus George Vernon Harcourt, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date12 January 1904
DescriptionHarrison refers to a conversation they had at the time of the last Physics and Chemistry Committee regarding the candidature of [Leveson Francis Vernon] Harcourt, and supposes that his intention was for the certificate to be resuspended for the next election but notes that there has been no definite request recorded. He reminds Harcourt so as to allow him to ask the Council to admit it, noting that they are likely to allow a grace period after the date fixed by Statute as this would be the first election under the new Statutes.

Harrison requests confirmation of his interpretation of Harcourt's wishes.
