TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Miss Wolfe, Jarvis Brock, Sussex
Date13 October 1906
DescriptionHad great pleasure in receiving through Wolfe's relative, Mr Carmichael Thomas, the donation of £100 which Wolfe has so generously made to the Society. Will report the gift at the first meeting of Council, with whom rests the ultimate decision as to the allocation of the money. Can advise Council as to Wolfe's wishes, which he understands are that it be used for the benefit of scientific research in its present most pressing needs, with a preference for investigations aiming to combat disease.
