TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to J [James] F [Francis] Tennant FRS
Date1 February 1913
Description'Many thanks for your two letters of yesterday about omissions in the new edition of the Record. I am having the matter looked into & will write to you again. The omission of a Fellows'name from the Charter Book is not by any means regular. A good many Fellows will [?] whose signatures did not, from one reason or another, get into the Charter Book. We have a copy of the Dictionary of National Biography and it could easily be taken downstairs at any time for you to refer to. I am very glad to hear of your wel being.'
