TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society to Dr Charles Sissmore Tomes FRS
Date18 January 1915
Description'I received last week your request, dated January 11th, for the re-suspension of Mr Mummery's certificate of candidature for the Royal Society' but I am sorry that it is out of my power to act upon it; the regulation prescribing the 31st December as the last day for sending in such requests being strictly enforced and all applications for a relaxation of it having been hitherto refused by the Council. Several such cases have occurred in past years, and so exception has been made.'
