Date2 November 1904
DescriptionIs much obliged by his sending of the long lost copy of the letter addressed to Captain [Robert] Scott. It does not contain the information the Royal Society expected to find in it except by reference to a letter from Scott which itself is not in Harrison's hands.

Requests a complete list of the names with rank, etc. and proper descriptions of every member of the company of the 'Discovery'. A formal letter of congratulation will be forwarded to every one of them.
