|Copy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to [John Herbert] Parsons, [Fellow of the Royal Society], 54 Queen Anne Street, W.
|2 December 1909
|Parsons letter arrived just after a telegram from Sir William de Wiveleslie Abney agreeing to next Wednesday for the meeting of the [Glassworkers' Cataract] Committee meeting. Harrison cannot say that there is any valance of the £500 from the Home Office, because they declined to pay over that amount, but takes it that the sanction of the Treasury last year to defray expenses up to the extent of £500 holds good for this year. If that is so, then the balance available is large, as £28-14-1 is the current amount of payments, but to which must be added accounts for laboratory assistants, and for the furnace which Sir William Crookes ordered recently.
