|Copy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Prof Silvanus P [Phillips] Thompson FRS
|3 January 1912
|'Thanks to Sir Arthur Church's Index we were able promptly to find the letter (guard-books) out for your inspection, whenever you may come in to consult them.
The date of the 1792 communications as printed appear perfectly correct.
Sir Arthur Church's index has four entries under Volta's name, the dates of which are 1782, 1792, 1793, and 1800. The delay in answering your letter is due to the vacation.'
