TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Herbert Hall Turner, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date13 February 1911
DescriptionThanks him for his letter. Harrison did not take his complaint about Mink's certificate as any accusation against the office, but to reassure himself he went through the records. Personally he agrees that it would be much simpler, and would save a great deal of trouble, if candidates' certificates were suspended automatically for a given number of years in succession, but he has to carry out Council's decisions, and hitherto they have insisted on the spontaneous initiative of candidate's supporters.
