TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr [Frank Watson] Dyson, [Fellow of the Royal Society], Astronomer Royal
Date7 May 1914
DescriptionIs sending a card for the Soiree to Mr Maunder, who has probably dropped off the printed list. Asks if he thinks his name should be placed on the permanent list.

Harrison received the other day a letter of his own, without a covering note, which was sent to Dyson on 16 March relating to that long treatise by the late Colonel Frere. Asks if some note of his was accidently ommitted. Harrison would like to know in case the son comes in to see him.
