TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr Richard Tetley Glazebrook, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date23 January 1906
DescriptionHarrison thanks Glazebrook for his letter informing him of the sitting of the Gassiot Committee on 16 February, but expresses his hope that it will not be late in the day as he already has an evening engagement.

He has been investigating the Report and Accounts of the Laboratory and their transmission to the Treasury, but their printed and copied records show no sign of them having been forwarded since May 1903, and the Council Minutes do not record the Report and Accounts having been laid before them since that date. Harrison suggests he should assume that they have been, rather than investigate further with the Treasury, and suggests that they simply note that they should be dealt with properly in future.
