TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to W B Keen
Date23 February 1912
DescriptionHarrison accompanied the Treasurer to an interview with the official at Somerset House who had formulated the enquiries which Keen sent on to Harrison relatings to some of the Trusts of the Society. As a result of that interview it was agreed that Harrison should furnish Keen with information on all points submitted in the Inland Revenue memorandum dated February 2 of this year.
With regard to the enquiries on page 1 concerning the Trusts of the Society, it will be sufficient if Keen forwards a copy of the Record of the Society to the Commissioners and refers them to pages 130 and 131, giving an account of the Hughes Medal, Mackinnon Studentships and Sylvester Medal Fund.
Harrison gives details of the names and address of the present Sorby Fellowship and Mackinnon Studentships.
