TitleCopy letter from Robert Frederick William Harrison, to Mr Percival Jones, Publisher, 87-89 Edmund Street, Birmingham
Date11 November 1905
DescriptionNotice has recently been drawn by one of the Fellows of the Society to a book published by Jones entitled 'The Life of George Dawson' by Dr Wright Wilson, in both the prospectus and announcements of which the author is incorrectly described as being a Fellow of the Royal Society. Notes that as Wilson is not a Fellow he is not entitled to place 'F.R.S.' after his name and Harrison asks that Jones correct this error in future. Wright may be a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh in which case he should be described as 'F.R.S.Edin.'.
