TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Horace Tabberer Brown, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date23 December 1907
DescriptionHarrison apologises for the delay in responding to Brown's letter of 19 December, but explains it was due to the work of arranging Lord Kelvin's funeral. There is time for the resuspension of Professor Adrian Brown's certificate, providing a request is sent prior to 31 December. He also notes the possibility of a supplementary certificate, bringing the qualifications up to date, if he can manage for it to be drawn up and signed by six Fellows [of the Royal Society], of whom three must certify their recommendation from personal knowledge, before the 31 December, but anticipates that the deadline may make it difficult.
