TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Dr G [George] Gore, Fellow of the Royal Society, 20 Easy Row, Birmingham
Date18 May 1908
DescriptionHarrison has no doubt that the words Gore propounds, namely, for "assisting original scientific discovery", would be held to comply with the terms mentioned in the Memorandum of the Wishes of the Council in respect to benefactions to the Society; but the object of that Memorandum was to induce potential benefactors to make their gifts as general as possible so to give the Society the opportunity of relieving the pressure which constantly fall upon the funds available.
