TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to the Rev. F D Bruce, North Tidworth Rectory, Wiltshire
Date30 April 1912
Description'In reply to your letter of the 27th instant, received today, our records show that a Joseph Glanvill was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society on December 14, 1664. The [?] of the Dictionary of National Biography states that he was one of the original Fellows of the Royal Society; this however, is an error as the original Fellows were elected in 1663.'
