TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Mackenzie Bell, 11 Buckingham Gate, SW
Date26 April 1911
Description 'In reply to your letter of the 12th instant I regret to say that our obituary notice of the late Robert Harley is not yet written. A Fellow of the Society has it in hand, but we have not yet received copy. In these circumstances it is difficult for me to say when we shall have it in type, but I certainly hope it will be made in letting you see a proof, provided the author consents, and that it is understood you do not actually copy it.'
