TitleCopy Letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Dr R [Richard] T [Tetley] Glazebrook, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date20 May 1908
Description'Dear Dr Glazebrook,
In answer to your letter received this morning, I will look up and send you any portraits I can find of those you mention. I am pretty sure I can send you Sir William Huggins, Lord Rayleigh and Sir George Stokes. Of Lord Kelvin's portrait we have no engravings and Sir Micheal Foster's have not yet been delivered. I have given me sometime ago general authority to present copies of these portraits to Institutions similar to the Laboratory abroad and therefore I shall have no hesitation in sending you all I can.'
