TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Signor Canonico, Attilio Gabrielli, Velletri, Rome
Date26 February 1909
DescriptionThere is no Academy of Science in London with the power to conferring degrees. There is certainly no scientific institution of any repute at the address mentioned in Canonico's letter. Harrison writes that the letter sent to Carnonico give the impression of being an attempt to exhort money by false pretences, and if he forwards it on Harrison will enquire, and perhaps place it in the hands of the police.
