TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Cameron Swan
Date3 November 1904
DescriptionHarrison has ascertained that a number of copies of the Rayleigh Portrait reproductions were send from the Royal Society to members of Lord Rayleigh's family, so it is possible there may be some mistake in the request addressed to Swan. If it means that that want some more sent out, then of course they can have them. Perhaps the family are not aware that these copies have been sent out from the Royal Society. Believes the list was given by Lord Rayleigh's son.
