TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Major E H Hill FRS
Date6 December 1911
Description'I sent a telephone message to your house this afternoon, but doubt if you maid took it down correctly.
I wanted to know if you would lend me tomorrow Father Cortie's report giving a short account of his Eclipse Expedition, the one you sent me on October 15, which was returned to you on November 20. If you could let me have it tomorrow morning I should be much obliged - I could return it to you the same day.'
