TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir William Henry Mahoney Christie, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date4 January 1910
DescriptionSir Joseph Larmor has asked Harrison to write regarding a meeting of the Observatories Committee. There is a good deal of formal business to transact, but the principal item on the agenda would be to suggest to the Government of India that leave of absence be given to [George Clarke] Simpson, Assistant to the Director of Observatories, to enable him to accompany Captain [Robert Falcon] Scott on his proposed South Pole expedition. The most convenient date appears to be 19 January.
