TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor [Herbert Hall] Turner, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date12 March 1907
DescriptionHis note and enclosures regarding the Huggins Portrait Fund arrived this morning, and Harrison is sending them on to the Swan Engraving Company and to Collier. The Committee formed in 1905 for making preliminary arrangements consisted of himself, the Astronomer Royal, Sir William de Wiveleslie Abney, Professor Joseph Larmor, Alfred Bray Kempe and Lord Rosse. Harrison is very sorry that the final circular has been delayed so long, it is entirely his fault. It is now being printed off.
