TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to S Carr
Date21 July 1914
DescriptionThe best answer to his letter of 17 July is to send a copy of the letter to Carr's President about Mr Biffen. Harrison would like it back as it is his only copy. He will see by the date that the matter has been very much neglected by Perkin, and it is too bad of him, considering that he made himself responsible for the application on Biffen's behalf, and the poor wretch may have been half starving all this time. His President has taken no notice of Harrison's letter at all until he wrote to him the other day to stir him up.
