TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Captain E [Ettrick] W [William] Creak CB, FRS
Date28 June 1909
Description'Dear Captain Creak,
I am exceedingly sorry to hear that you are still on the sick list but I hope you are now well on the way to recovery.
I feel sure the obituary of Dr Neumayer could well wait until August, and if you think that during the vacation you could undertake it I know the Council would like you to do it.
I am going to the Isle of Wight myself on June 25th and hope we may meet. I expect to go to Freshwater.'
