TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to A H Fison, 147 Dartmouth Road, Willesden Green
Date22 December 1905
DescriptionHarrison responds to Fison's complaint on behalf of the widow of Professor Alexander William Williamson that notices of Royal Society business are still being sent to his address, expressing his regret that this occurred. He has been unable to ascertain how it happened, noting that nothing has been sent from their office and their printers were notified of his death, though he is writing to them again to ensure they do not repeat their error. He asks that if there is any recurrence, that he be forwarded the card or other communication sent in error.
