TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to the Earl of Rosse [Laurence Parsons], Fellow of the Royal Society
Date3 November 1905
DescriptionThanks Rosse for his note which clears up the question of the ten guineas Rosse paid in for the Huggins Portrait Fund. Has written accordingly to Sir Andrew Noble, whose subscription they thought this was. It is unfortunate that Lord Strathcona's name has not appeared on the list of subscribers but Harrison imagines a final revised list will be printed.
