TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Colonel David Bruce, Fellow of the Royal Society, care of Professor John Rose Bradford, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date23 December 1903
DescriptionHarrison believes Bruce missed a copy of the enclosure which was sent to his town address. He asks that Bruce return the proof, with any amendments, as quickly as possible to Sir Michael Foster at Shelford who is due to travel abroad the following week, and already has the suggestions of the other sub-Committee members.

Harrison notes that he sent two bills from Baird & Tatlock for things they state Bruce has ordered, but for which Harrison does not know the destination, namely a bottle with 2 ounces of microscopic cover glasses, which are likely to be for Captain Greig, but have been received not packed for transmission abroad.
