TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr [William Napier] Shaw, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date19 May 1914
DescriptionReferring to Shaw's letter of 13 May, Harrison does not think he need trouble to make direct application for the payment of the dividends of the Rosse Fund. It would be simpler for the Royal Society to pay over the dividends when they come in - in February and September - as in the case of the other trust funds. It was intended to let Shaw know of this departure from the original arrangement, but it seems to have escaped notice.
