TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Professor J [John] T [Theodore] Cash FRS
Date14 July 1909
Description'Dear Sir,
I beg to acknowledge receipt of the corrected proof of your notice of Prof D J Hamilton, with accompanying copy of portrait. I quite agree that the addition of the portrait would add to the interest of the notice, but on the score of expense we are precluded from giving portraits, except in special cases, and in this case the Secretaries considered that there was no sufficient need for one. I return the copy you sent with this, as you may like to have it back.'
