TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to the Secretary, Imperial Academy of Science, Vienna
Date6 March 1913
Description'In connection with the celebration last year of the 250th Anniversary of the foundation of the Royal Society the Imperial Academy of Sciences was good enough to appoint a delegate to attend the celebrations, but so far as I can ascertain he was prevented from being present.
On that occasion Addresses of Congratulation were presented or sent by a number of Universities and learned bodies, and these it is proposed to print and publish as a memorial of the occasion. I do not find among them any Address from Vienna; but before printing the collection I should like to be satisfied that no such Address was sent.'
