TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Professor A [Arthur] Schuster FRS
Date16 July 1909
DescriptionThe grant made to Professor Gamgee was £100 and was given to him in part payment of expenses incurred in the prosecution of a research on the "Continuous automatic registration of the changes in the temperature of the animal body". No other grant for this research was made by the Royal Society and therefore the Royal Society has no property in any apparatus which Professor Gamgee may have purchased.
