TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Edgar Worthington, Secretary of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers
Date6 February 1906
DescriptionHarrison's delay in replying was caused by the illness of his correspondence clerk. He cannot agree to Worthington's request for 20 copies of the Royal Society's form of certificate for candidates as these are only granted to Fellows of the Society. A form is provided for his private information though, which may allow him to have copies prepared along similar lines for use of the Council of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers.
