TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, the Right Honourable, the Earl of Rosse [Laurence Parsons], Fellow of the Royal Society
Date29 September 1905
DescriptionIn making up the accounts of the Huggins Portrait Fund, Harrison finds an amount of £3.3.0 stated in the bankers book to the credit of the fund on 4 July, but without any name attached. Asks if the Earl can help him identify who this sum is from, as it will help him avoid the risk of applying for this subscription amongst others that are not yet paid.
