Date12 January 1904
DescriptionHarrison confirms receipt of a Certificate proposing Robert Hadfield for election to the Royal Society, but points out the two previous occasions on which Fellows of the Royal Society had been informed of the new Statutes giving the last day for receipt of Certificates as 31st December. He suggests, given that this is the first election governed by the new Statutes, that Council may give a week's grace providing he formally request it and explain the reason for his delay in forwarding the Certificate.
