TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir William Huggins, President of the Royal Society
Date30 September 1905
DescriptionReceived Huggins' telephone message but Sir A Geikie has not come in and Harrison does not know where he is. Has not felt quite justified in sending Huggins' suggested cablegram to Sir David Gill on his own responsibility. Presumes in any case that Huggins has written to Lady Wharton himself and that the postponement of the message to the Cape until Monday will not be very material. Harrison has written to Geikie.
