TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Professor H [Harold] B [Baily] Dixon FRS
Date12 May 1911
Description'Immediately after you had left yesterday I had your letter of the 16th last December handed to me. It refers exclusively to (1) Dr Weizmann's naturalisation as a British subject, and (2) a copy of the medal proposals for the Davy medal which you ask for. There is no word in it about Mr D L Chapman's certificate; and we have a positive record that when Dr Weizmann's certificate was sent in two days previously, it was not accompanied by any letter. I am sorry the name was left out, but I think the responsibility rests with you.'
