TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to The Lord Rayleigh [John William Strutt], President of the Royal Society, Teling Place
Date2 June 1908
DescriptionHarrison received his telegram yesterday, and his letter this morning. The Treasurer and Sir Archibald Geikie are intending to go to Sir John Evans' funeral. However, it seems that the Treasurer has committed Rayleigh, as he wrote to Lady Evans on the strength of his telegram, and said the President would be in attendance also. At Geikie's suggestion, Harrison is writing to some of the older members of Council, Sir William Crookes, Sir George Darwin, Professor [David] Ferrier and Mr [William] Whitaker, to see if they will also attend.
