TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr George Johnstone Stoney, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date19 October 1906
DescriptionIn reply to Stoney's note of 17 October, there were no honorary secretaries, so-called, of the Huggins Portrait fund, but all the business was practically conducted by Harrison and Dr [Joseph] Larmor. The Honorary Treasurers were Lord Rosse and Professor H H Turner. Has not seen the reproduction of the portrait and would much like to do so. Presumes it is being sent round to all the subscribers and that the Swan Company are doing this direct.
