TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society to Sir David Prain CIE, CMG, FRS
Date11 January 1915
Description'In printing the papers to send round to the Indian Government Advisory Committee for next week, as you desired, I have not so far set up the one application from Mr Dudgeon with its accompanying testimonials, because I thought that perhaps to give that prominence to one application, if other names are under consideration, might seem to prejudice the question laid before the committee. If however you intended that application to be printed and circulated, there is time enough to do it you will let me know. I enclose a post card to save you time and trouble.'
