TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to C [Charles] V [Vernon] Boys, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date4 May 1908
DescriptionColonel Feilden's exhibit seems likely to be a duplicate of Mr Henry Balfrour's from the Museum at Oxford and Dr Larmor thought it better Harrison wrote to Feilden and point out the circumstances. In reply Feilden wrote that he has taken no steps yet to arrange his collection for exhibition and places himself entirely in the Royal Society's hands. Larmor thinks in these circumstances that it would be a pity to put Colonel Feilden to the trouble unless Boys has strong feelings to the contrary.
