TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Edward Nettleship, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date8 June 1912
DescriptionUnfortunately owing to the circumstances which delayed his admission into the Royal Society until this month it was not possible for his name to appear on the photograph which has been made of the last page of the Charter Book. Harrison is in communication with the Oxford Press, who are making the facsimile of the Charter Book which is about to be published, to see if it would be possible to add a name to their photograph from a separate signature. Asks him for a signature exactly as it is written in the Charter Book.
