TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to E Worthington, Secretary, Institution of Mechanical Engineers
Date31 October 1910
DescriptionThe only explanation Harrison can provide for the discrepancy in dates on the subject of their institution's nominations to the National Physical Laboratory, is that the date 1912 in Harrison's letter of three years ago was a clerical error as all other records point to 1913 as the date of the termination of Mr Harris' service.
