TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Sir J [John] Wolfe Barry KCB, FRS
Date21 July 1909
Description'Dear Sir John,
In reply to your letter of yesterday I enclose a form of certificate for candidates for election [no enclosure].
The draft particulars you send are in order as far as substance goes, but as no qualifications of a candidate are formally considered, except such as are written on the face of the certificate, I fear you would have difficulty in getting in quite so much as is typed if your draft. Some of it might perhaps be abbreviated and if written very small might be got on the certificate.'
