TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to W Edgeworth, Kilshrewly
Date10 April 1908
DescriptionDr Wilson having made the payment for the Callendar recorder would not necessarily imply that it was paid out of his own monies, because the grants made out of the Government Grant are almost invariably paid over to the applicant to meet the expenses of his research. Since the Callendar records is entered in our books as the property of the Government Grant, Harrison thinks they can conclude it was paid for by the grant.
