TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to The Honorable Sir Charles Parsons, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date22 June 1914
DescriptionHe will have received a notice of the meeting of the Sorby Committee for 30 June. Is sorry that this should seem to ignore his selection of a day, but as there was a clear majority in favour of that date, declared before his card was received, the question could not be opened. Hopes he may be able to attend, but if not, his letter on the merits of the Engineering candidates will of course be read to the Committee.
