TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Messrs Robarts, Lubbock & Company
Date6 October 1908
DescriptionRegarding their letter of yesterday, it is not understood what they mean by the Royal Society's 'Scientific Relief Fund in Aid of Publication'. The £500 sent by the Treasurer should be placed in the Royal Society's General Purposes Account. This has been sent regularly twice a year for many years, and they have always confused it with the half-yearly grant in aid of scientific investigations and regularly placed it in the wrong account. Asks that they note that £500 is to go into the General Purposes Account and £2000 is placed in aid of scientific investigations.
