TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to F C Forth, Principal, Municipal Technical Institute, Belfast
Date7 October 1912
DescriptionThe Royal Society has a painted portait of Leibniz, but it is a very poor picture, and it would not lend itself at all well to reproduction. There is no reproduction which can be lent, but if he thinks if worthwhile getting a photograph made up of the painting Harrison does not think Council will object.
