TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Oscar Guttmann, 12 Mark Lane, E.C.
Date12 December 1905
DescriptionHarrison responds to Guttmann's enquiry to inform him that, with the exception of records relating to his election, he has found no further information about Edward Howard. He suggests that it may be a point of interest that Howard, described as "of the Temple" was recommended on the basis of his knowledge of various branches of natural knowledge and as someone "likely to become a valuable Member". He gives the dates of suspension, election and admittance as a Fellow, and his date of death as 1816.
