Date11 January 1909
DescriptionHarrison discusses the late Dr Sorby's will and his plans to set up a Trust with the Royal Society. With regard to the particular question of the transfer of Gas Shares, the Treasurer says that in view of the fact that all securities held by the Royal Society are Trustee securities, he would not feel justified in advising the Council to accept investments of the nature of Gas Shares.
