TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to H J Read
Date17 October 1907
DescriptionHarrison reminds Read that the Royal Society made a grant of £200 out of the Government Grant Reserve Fund towards the expense of scientific equipment required by the Mediterranean Fever Commission. The Society undertook to pay the accounts, with an application to be made for refunds of expenses over the £200 for which they were responsible, with the last Crown Agents refund received on 16 April 1907 for accounts paid by the Society up to December 1906.

He encloses a statement of expenses beyond that date, and asks that it be presented for early payment as the Society's books close for their annual audit early in November.
