|Title||Copy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Professor Karl Pearson FRS|
|Date||3 January 1912|
|Description||'In partial reply to your letter of the 30th December I think I cannot do better than send you the enclosed copy of the certificate of candidature of "Samuel Glaton of Birmingham", who appears to have been elected a Fellow here on December 8, 1785 (not 1786 as noted in the memoranda you quote). This answers your first two questions. |
Your enquiry with regard to his contributions to the Society and to our possessing any portrait of him will take longer to look up, but I will send you a reply as soon as possible.'
