TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society to his Excellency, the American Ambassador
Date21 January 1915
Description'On November 30th last the Royal Society allotted a Royal Gold Medal to Dr Ernest William Brown, Professor of Mathematics in Yale University, New Haven.
Dr Brown was unable to be present on the occasion, and accordingly the Medal was retained here as there was some probability of his coming to England.
We have now heard that he cannot come to England and in these circumstances I beg to ask whether Your Excellency would be so good, supplementing former kindness, as to transmit the Medal to Dr Brown at Yale University.
If this course is possible the Medal shall be delivered at the Embassy.'
