TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr E K Martin
Date19 December 1910
DescriptionSending a cheque for £56.3.4 in discharge of the debt to Martin of the Royal Society's Committee on Glassworkers' Cataract. On comparing Martin's accounts with the Royal Society books Harrison found that the item of £3.6.11 sent in last summer for bills paid by Martin up to May, has been already paid by cheque last July, and the cheque now being sent is for the balance of the statement presented to the Committee at their meeting last month. Mistakes would be avoided if accounts were sent at regular intervals.
