TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Arthur Schuster, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date9 March 1906
DescriptionHarrison thanks Schuster for highlight the incorrect addressing of his postcards, and notes that though similiar occurances have occurred before, it is unacceptable for this to have happened when the change of addressed was made so long ago, and so he is writing a strongly worded letter to the printers.

He also raised Schuster's suggestion that they present copies of the better portraits from their Obituary Notices to laboratories, domestic and overseas, who may like them. It was agreed that extra copies be reserved for this purpose, but that they should be formally presented by the Royal Society. If Schuster supplies the names and addresses of the laboratories he wishes the portraits be sent to, Harrison will have them forwarded with a covering letter.
