TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Louis C Purser, Secretary, Royal Irish Academy
Date5 December 1904
DescriptionIs having difficulty tracing the letter sent from the Royal Society, as they do not mention a subject. Can only suppose he is referring to the circular letter which was sent to the President of the Royal Irish Academy on the subject of the Scientific Relief Fund. The letter called to the President's attention the existence of this fund, and the fact that he has the power to recommend cases to the Committee for relief.
