TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to H [Hugh] F [Frank] Newall, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date16 December 1908
Description'Dear Mr Newall,
It is a matter entirely for the supported of the candidate whether or not to send in what we call 'testimony papers'. A certain number do so, but I think it is done generally in the case of a minority of the candidates. You will know better than I do whether these papers are looked at by the Council.'
