TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr Henry Woodward, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date4 December 1907
DescriptionIn response to Woodward's note, Harrison sends a proof copy of the President's Address, which should give all that has been said about Dr Traquair. He points out that the other Royal Medal was awarded to Dr Hobson for mathematics.

Harrison thanks Woodward for his kind wishes and invitation. He will certainly look in on Woodward if he is ever nearby, but notes that he hardly ever is able to leave the Royal Society early enough to go to tea with anyone.
