TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor George Downing Liveing, Newnham
Date30 May 1906
DescriptionHarrison was sorry to have missed a recent visit by Liveing, delivering a letter from M Armet de Lisle about the supply of uranium residue, apparently sent to him from Australia for reduction. The letter appears to enquire whether Lisle should pay the charge of 1505 couronnes, and Harrison suggests that Liveing allow him to forward the bill, it should then be certified by the Chairman of the Radium Committee and sent on to the Royal Society for payment.
