TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Sir J [John] Wolfe Barry, KCB, FRS
Date3 November 1911
Description'I have just received your letter of yesterday and am quite at a loss to understand the statement that has been made to you.
1. I have questioned everybody in the house and can find no trace of Sir Arthur Rucker having been here at all since October 12; (2) Sir Arthur Rucker's signature is already on Mr Parsons' certificate, and he was among the original signatories; (3) The certificate has been in its proper place and accessible ever since the re-opening of the building after the August closing, and was duly read before the Society yesterday at the first meeting in accordance with the Statutes.
I should very much like to know the origin of Sir Arthur Rucker's statement to you.'
