TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Walter Chitty, Wilcot Pewsey, Wiltshire
Date1 October 1907
DescriptionHarrison explains that though he would be happy to help Chitty's research into the ancestry of Charles Bathurst, his knowledge of the Royal Society's records leads him to believe it would be a 'waste of time'. Beyond Bathurst being a bookseller to the Society, they are unlikely to have any information.
