Date21 November 1907
DescriptionHarrison acknowledges receipt of Gresle's letter of 14 November, enclosing portions of the will of the late monsieur Specht. In the circumstances described regarding the disappearence of the manuscript which forms the subject of Specht's testamentary dispositions, it appears that the Royal Society is not required to take any action at present, but Gresle's letter and the codicil will be reported to the Society's Council in due course.
