TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Major Percy Alexander MacMahon, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date15 October 1907
DescriptionHarrison encloses, for MacMahon in his capacity as Chairman of the Scientific Relief Committee, a letter from Mr Wollaston. He also highlights two communications, which are at the Royal Society's offices, from the Prime Minister's private secretary waiting for MacMahon to visit and look at them. He also notes that an application is likely to be submitted on behalf of the recent widow of a Fellow of the Royal Society.

He asks whether MacMahon would consider a meeting to discuss all the matters covered in this letter, and if so, asks that he suggests a date, providing it is not 24 October.
