TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Captain Ettrick William Creak, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date15 December 1910
DescriptionCreak's request for the resuspension of Bernacchi's certificate, together with the supplementary certificate he enclosed, puts Harrison in a difficulty, for the solution of which he has no precedent. Bernachhi's certificate has lapsed, but if he wishes the supplementary certificate to be resuspended Harrison cannot refuse to do so, but it is a question of whether he desires the document going around Fellows by itself. The alternative is to get out a new certificate.
