TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Miss E Eliot, Shenstone Lodge, Codrington Hill, Forest Hill, S.E.
Date6 November 1912
DescriptionIn answer to her letter of 30 October, the Council would probably grant her permission to consult the manuscript letters in the Royal Society's archives if she made a formal application explaining the purpose. Does not find there are any letters by writers of her name, with the exception of two by Dr John Eliot or Elliott in the latter part of the eighteenth century. As to the original manuscript of Dr Spottiswoode's article, it is still in existence among the Royal Society papers.
