TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir William Niven, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date4 January 1905
DescriptionAs the names on candidates' certificates must be signatures, Harrison has no power to add any. Dr Mitchell Bruce's certificate has enough signatures to make it valid, and Niven can add his name on his next visit, though this needs to be soon if it is to be included on the printed copies of certificates circulated to Fellows.

Niven is yet to supply the reference to Dyson's paper which he promised to enable Harrison to locate his report on that paper.
