TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Sir G [George] H [Howard] Darwin KCB, FRS
Date12 December 1911
Description'As you are no doubt aware, there is a gift of money associated with the Copley Medal; and lest you should think it had been forgotten I sent a line to say that the delay in forwarding you a cheque is due to our failure to receive so far the bill for the medal itself; until that is in our hands we cannot make up the exact amount of the balance which has to be paid over to the medalist. As soon as the account is made up a cheque will be drawn by the Treasurer and sent to you.'
