TitleCopy letter from Robert Frederick William Harrison, to H J Read
Date7 November 1905
DescriptionIn making up the Society's accounts Harrison finds that they still have a balance outstanding as a claim on the Crown Agents for disbursements made by the Royal Society in respect of the investigation into Malaria, the expenses of which were met out of a fund held at the Colonial Office and administered by the Crown Agents. The balance amounts to something under £50 and he would be glad to know how to get it settled. Has no reason to expect any further expenditure on this account, unless the investigation is renewed in some fresh form.
