TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to G D Knox, The Time of India, Bombay
Date14 June 1910
DescriptionHarrison was puzzled for a moment on receiving Knox's letter as Harrison had no notion that he had gone to India. Harrison responds at once to Knox's request by sending a Year Book of the Society for the use of the "Times of India". With regard to the Soiree, both entertainments of that kind have been abandoned on account of the mourning for our late King.
Harrison thanks Knox for remembering the question of a boat, and he has decided to buy an old boat on the Solent.
The Royal society have had difficulty in the matter of an obituary notice of Mr Hennesey and have written on a Fellow in India to ask if he will prepare one.
