TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Sir A [Alfred] B [Bray] Kempe, Treas RS
Date5 January 1912
DescriptionSince the audit of the accounts Mr Keen has alled Harrison's attention to the telephone charges, and asked why we [The Royal Society] do not have the unlimited service instead of subscribing for the message rate. Harrison writes that the existing service is most difficult to keep a check on the accounts, although on the other hand the expenses do not at present quite reach the subscription for the unlimited service. Harrison gives details of costs and writes that he is in favour of the unlimited service.
Harrison shall be glad to have Kempe's decision on this at once.
