TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to S F Cowell, Secretary, Royal College of Surgeons of England
Date14 November 1911
Description'In reply to your note, the Royal Society prints all its accounts, including the Balance Sheet, in the Year Book of the Society, and in so far as that may be considered publication they are thus published. The Council however is under no statutory obligation to publish its Balance Sheet and the practice I have described has simply arisen as a convenient mode of laying the accounts before the Fellows of the Society.
You have no doubt a copy of the Year Book in your library and will be able to see the form in which the accounts are made up.'
