TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir John Murray, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date23 December 1904
DescriptionReturning the letter from the Nautical Prepatory School, which Sir Archibald Geikie has seen [no enclosures]. It is a pity, but fortunate that the Challenger volume had not gone out to them. It would be best if these should remain with Murray for now. Is very sorry about the incident with the telegram about his dinner, and is sorry that when he came to the hotel he did not stay, as there was a good vacancy, which they always keep for accidents of this kind.
