TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Professor Heinrich Kayser, Bonn
Date3 January 1912
Description'Your note of the 29th December to Sir Joseph Larmor has come into my hands for investigation, and I deeply regret to find on enquiry that the diploma of Foreign Membership which I ordered to be despatched to you on December 9th last was misdirected, and has gone astray in the post. I have at once set on foot enquiries with the object of recovering it, and so soon as I succeed it shall be sent on to you without further delay. In the meantime I hope you will accept my profound apologies for this office blunder and rest assured that I will neglect no means to remedy it as promptly as possible.'
