TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to The General Press Cuttings Association, Limited, Lennox House, Norfolk Street, W.C.
Date23 September 1905
DescriptionWith reference to the Association's memoranda Harrison encloses a cheque for two guineas for renewal of a subscription for newspaper cuttings relating to the Royal Society.

Notes however that they have in the past received a great many cuttings from obscure papers with only passing reference to the Society, whilst many paragraphs bearing directly on the Society, especially those from 'The Times' appear not to have been sent. Trusts more attention will be given to this matter in future and lists the particular subjects more immediately concerned with the work of the Royal Society. Some of these subjects may occur without the direct mention of the Royal Society's name, but they would like to have any references to them, and any notices of the Fellows.
