TitleCopy letter from Robert Frederick William Harrison, to Professor Harold Baily Dixon, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date10 November 1905
DescriptionIn reply to Dixon's note, the only balance there seems to be in hand among the Government Grant apparatus is a large balance by Gertling, which appears to have been brought in 1897. Lists the approximate dimensions of this. Knows nothing at present of the sensitiveness of the balance but if this looks like the sort of thing Dixon would like, he will obtain further particulars from the clerk of the Government Grant Committee who is presently on sick leave.
