TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to the General Manager, General Post Office London Telephone Service
Date21 September 1905
DescriptionThe enclosed account for telephone calls in respect of the month of August [not enclosed], has just been brought to his notice and appears excessive in view of the Society's own record of the calls made on the telephone during August. Wonders if calls of the Chemical Society and the British Association, both of which are in the same building, may have been charged in error to the Royal Society. The Society's record of calls is 68 for July and less than a dozen for August.
