TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr Richard Tetley Glazebrook, Fellow of the Royal Society, Bushy House, Teddington, S.W.
Date11 June 1906
DescriptionHarrison notes the lack of a receipt for the £25 sent by the Treasurer's cheque to Glazebrook around 20 May for a curve tracer ordered from Otto Toepfer & Sohn of Potsdam. As it was sent via Glazebrook, he speculates that the receipt may have been returned to the National Physical Laboratory, and asks that, if this is the case, it be forwarded to the Royal Society for the benefit of their auditors.

Harrison explains that, upon more careful reading, he realises that the invitation Glazebrook forwarded for the opening of the Electrical Laboratory on 25 June, authorises him to request a ticket of admission. The deadline for application has now passed, but if it is not too late, Harrison enquires whether he might be granted a ticket of admission.
