TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Dr W S Bruce, Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh
Date29 January 1909
Description'My dear Sir,
I have to acknowledge your letter of yesterday thanking the Society for the grant from the Publication Fund. I am however to make a correction in the terms of the letter informing you of the decision of the Council. That letter referred to the purposes of the grant in terms quoted from your own letter of application, but the actual decision of the Council was to make the grant in more general terms "In aid of publishing the results of the Scottish Antarctic Expedition", and not specifically to defray the cost of particular parts of the publication.'
