TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr Douglas Graham, Boston, Massachusetts
Date20 September 1904
DescriptionAlthough the [person?] they refer to is undoubtedly sailing under false colours, the Royal Society has, Harrison believes, no legal remedy against such abuse of its name, and at this distance it is especially difficult to exercise any influence upon the acts of persons of that character. However, Harrison has written to a Foreign Member of the Royal Society [Professor Alexander Emmanuel Rodolphe Agassiz] to inform him.
